From The Joy of Cooking.

2 sides pork ribs (about 6 pounds)
2 teaspoons ground sage
2 teaspoons salt
1 to 2 teaspoons ground black pepper
1 teaspoon dried thyme
6 juniper berries, finely crushed (optional)

Rub the mixture over both sides of the ribs. Arrange the ribs bone side up on a broiler pan or on a rack set in a roasting pan. Cover loosely with wax paper or plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 to 12 hours.

Position a rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Roast the ribs for 45 minutes, then turn them meat side up and roast until the ribs are nicely browned and very tender, 45 to 60 minutes more. Remove from the oven and let stand for 15 minutes. Slice between bones and serve.
