Rinse the pork ribs and dry them with paper towels.
Soak them for several hours in a mixture of the spices and vinegar, then drain and bake them about 30 min. in a preheated 356°F (180 °C) oven.
In the meantime, mix the honey with the ketchup and dissolve on low heat.
Smear the ribs with the resulting mixture and bake another 5 min. in the oven.
