Let's hear it for one of America's legendary heros, Johnny Appleseed. You can thank John Chapman, alias Johnny Appleseed for traveling the countryside on foot, planting orchards in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Kentucky, Illinois and Indiana, spanning an estimated area of 100,000 square miles. We dedicate this recipe to his hard efforts!
You may prepare this recipe with pork spare ribs, babyback ribs, pork shoulders or pork (Boston) butts. Just make your recipe proportionate. Today, we will address the spare ribs.

3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup med onion
3 tbls LIGHT olive oil
1 tbls Worcestershire sauce
