Sweet & Spicy Rub for Pork Bones or Ribs!

Originally posted on Facebook, August 2018:

Last night we made roasted #kunekune pork bones. Let me tell you… this was quite possibly the most tasty and finger-licking good way to make use of these bones, ever! My son and I barely waited for them to cool, before we dug in and stood in front of the stove, gnawing the sweet & spicy seasoned morsels off the bone. It was incredible, and we’ll definitely be cooking up the rest of the bones this way.

This is a great way to cook ribs, in particular!

From the post I made last night: Whole Hog Eating — pork bones! We got two big bags of pork bones back from our recent processing, as the meat was all utilized for sausage making… so we had a lot of bones! And there is still meat on the bones, honestly several meals for us. Out comes a tasty dry rub, and a long, slow roast in the oven. After the meat is off, we can make pork stock with the bones. Nothing goes to waste!

The rub recipe is an adaptation of one I found online- adjusting some of the herbs and spices. I’m sharing my version of it, as I’ll most definitely be using this rub again!
