  2. Drizzle the ribs with olive oil then arrange in an oven dish. Bake for 20 minutes, then reduce heat to 150C and bake for 1 1/2 hours. Pour in red wine, cover with foil, then bake for 2 hours, until the meat is fall-apart tender. Set aside.
  3. Place the garlic in a small baking dish. Increase the heat to 180C then bake for 1 hour. Squeeze out three-quarters of the roasted garlic puree into a blender and add the buttermilk. Puree until smooth, then set aside.
  4. Squeeze the remaining garlic into a meduim saucepan with the onion, passata, molasses, vinegar, mustard powder, remaining spices, remaining sugar and celery salt. Simmer for one hour, until thickened, then transfer to a blender and puree until smooth.
  5. Mix the flour, bi-carb soda, parmesan and dried herbs in a bowl, mix in the buttermilk gently to form a dough, then cut into discs with a 6cm cutter. Arrange on lined biscuit trays then bake for 20-22 minutes, until golden. Serve the ribs with cheesy biscuits, greens and barbecue sauce.
