  5. Pull ribs out of the pans and set into a hotel pan or large roasting pan.
  6. Lower flame and sauté shallots and garlic till soft.
  7. Add peaches and sauté briefly.
  8. Add these ingredients to the pan with the ribs.
  9. In a separate stock pot, heat chicken stock, sugar (or peach syrup if using the canned variety), TABASCO® Sauce and vinegar to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar.
  10. Place ribs into oven set at 350°F, cover ribs with chicken stock mixture and cover with aluminum foil. Let cook for about 2 hours, checking to see if they are tender and almost falling off the bone.
  11. Gently pull ribs from liquid and set aside to cool, preferably overnight.
  12. Take liquid that the ribs were cooking in, pour into a saucepan and slowly reduce to a glaze on the stove.
