Crockpot Cranberry Ribs

I bought too much food for Thanksgiving, and we ended up having about a third of the company we usually do, since there was a big snowstorm that week.  I've been happy to find a couple of recipes that have helped me use up the extra ingredients!  This used the cranberry sauce and applesauce.  I'm glad that they won't be sitting in the pantry for a year, and then end up unusable!  These ribs really did fall off the bone (and back into the crockpot).  They were really delicious!

Crockpot Cranberry Ribs
from Misoginger

4 lbs pork ribs (take the membrane off the back)
1 can whole berry cranberry sauce
1/2 cup applesauce
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp salt
1 tsp pepper

Spray the crockpot with cooking spray.  Cut the ribs into individual ribs and place them in the crockpot.  Add the rest of the ingredients and stir to coat the ribs.  Turn crockpot to high and cook at least 6 hours.  Remove ribs and set aside on a platter.  Skim the fat from the sauce.  Remove the sauce from the crockpot.  Pour half the sauce over the ribs and reserve the rest for dunking the ribs.
