  • 2 racks baby back ribs
  • 2 tablespoons F. Oliver’s Greektown Seasoning


  • 2 tablespoons F. Oliver’s Garden Fresh Gremolata EVOO
  • ½ Vidalia onion, finely diced
  • ½ cup F. Oliver’s Summer Blueberry Balsamic
  • 4 teaspoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons molasses
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 roasted poblano pepper, finely diced


  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.  Rub ribs with Greektown Seasoning and place on a foil lined baking sheet, bone side down. Bake for two hours.
  • To make BBQ sauce: heat EVOO in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until softened, about five minutes.
  • Add remaining ingredients and stir until combined. Increase heat and bring mixture to a low boil, cook for five minutes. Reduce heat to low, partially cover, and simmer for ten minutes.
  • Remove cover. Using the back of a wooden spoon, mash blueberries against the side of the pan to release juices. The sauce can be made smoother by blending when cooled. 
  • When ribs are baked, remove from oven and brush both sides BBQ sauce.  Grill for about five minutes, until sauce caramelizes. Serve with remaining sauce.
