How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 3 ingredients; rub over all sides of roast.

Step 2

Fold a piece of aluminum foil into an 8-inch square; place on a rack in a roasting pan. Place roast, bone ends up, on foil-lined rack.

Step 3

Bake at 350° for 1 hour.

Step 4

Spoon 2 cups of Cranberry-Pecan Stuffing into center of roast; cover with a 12-inch square of heavy-duty foil, and fold over tips of ribs.

Step 5

Bake at 350° for 1 1/2 hours or until a meat thermometer registers 160°. Remove foil; let roast stand 15 minutes before slicing.

Step 6

Pour pan drippings into a skillet; add butter, and cook over medium heat until butter melts. Add flour, whisking until smooth; cook while whisking constantly, until caramel-colored.

Step 7

Stir in chicken broth and next 4 ingredients; cook, whisking constantly, until smooth and thickened. Serve with roast. Garnish, if desired.

Step 8

To make sugared fruit: sprinkle 4 envelopes unflavored gelatin over 4 cups warm water; stir with a wire whisk until gelatin dissolves. Dip fruit into gelatin mixture, shaking to remove excess; sprinkle all sides of fruit with superfine sugar, covering completely. Place on baking sheets; let stand 30 minutes or until dry and firm.
