Make Caribbean-style barbecue spare ribs

Treat yourself to some authentic Caribbean-style BBQ ribs, but don't run to your Caribbean restaurant just yet! You can make some sweet Caribbean barbecue spare ribs in your own kitchen. Try out this recipe from Wilma Browne Yarde and learn her enticing marinade for pork spare ribs that's remarkably easy to assemble. Eleven cloves of garlic go into the Caribbean-inspired green seasoning in the marinade, well known to islanders as simply "seasoning," and includes habañero pepper, cilantro, ginger and a touch of citrus. After 24 hours in the marinade, the ribs are baked in more marinade for about an hour, and basted with even more marinade. But you'll smell the aroma long before then. Be patient. The wait is worth it.
