Cut the familiar way, the barbecued spareribs will be a popular dish for the family. Canned baked beans, topped with frankfurters, are the better of taste with a savory molasses barbecue sauce stirred in before heating. Barbecued chicken, perennial favorite, can be baked or broiled with the same splendid molasses barbecue sauce. Delicate unsulphured molasses contrasts taste-wise with the nip of prepared mustard in an easy barbecue sauce which can be made up in quantity without refrigeration.
