    I need a spectacular short rib recipe. I had short ribs with blueberries in the sauce at Greystone in Napa Valley a few years ago and would like something similar. Please help.

    Here are three ideas. The first one is a glaze that I have used with ribs. The second one I have used as sauce for duck but I would think you could reduce to glaze for ribs. The last one is actually a salad dressing but I don't see why it wouldn't work as marinade for ribs.

    Apricot Jalapeno Glaze
    Weight or VolumeIngredients
    1 Jalapeno, seeded, chopped
    1/2 tablespoonGarlic, finely chopped
    1/2 cupApricot Preserves
    1/4 teaspoonChipotle, finely chopped
    1/2 teaspoonCoriander, cracked
    to tasteSalt
    to tastePepper
    Saute the jalapeno and garlic until lightly golden brown. Deglaze with the beer. Add remaining ingredients and reduce until thickened.

    Blackberry Ginger Sauce
    Weight or VolumeIngredients
    6 ouncesBlackberries
    1/2 cupPort
    1/2 ounceGinger, finely chopped
    1/4 cupDemi Glace
    1 1/2 teaspoonsGastric
    Combine blackberries, port, ginger and demi. Bring to a boil, cover, and turn heat off. Let sit for 5 minutes. Add gastric and blend. Strain through fine mesh strainer.

    Blueberry and Lavender Vinaigrette
    Weight or VolumeIngredients
    1/2 cupBlueberries
    1/2 teaspoonsLavender
    1/4 cupBalsamic Vinegar
    1/4 cupManufacturing Cream
    1/2 cupOlive Oil

    Bring blueberries to a boil and simmer until 1/4 cup in volume. Cool slightly and add lavender. Blend. Add balsamic and blend, with machine running slowly add cream, salt, and pepper. With machine still running slowly add the oil.
