The Rib Roast: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, combine the spices in
olive oil. Rub the spice mixture all over the roast (inside and out). Place roast, bone ends
up, in a shallow roasting pan. With twine, tie the bones into a circle. Fold aluminum foil
over the tops of the bones, if exposed, to prevent burning. Bake the roast for 20 to 25
minutes per pound or until done.

The Rice: In a large sauce pan, melt the butter, and bring the broth to a boil. Then add
the rice and onion, reduce the heat and simmer for about 15 minutes. Remove from
heat, cover and let stand for 10 minutes. Then gently fold in the apricots and pecans.

The Sauce: Melt the butter in a medium sauce pan over low heat. Stir in the brown
sugar and sage and cook for one minute. Then stir in the cranberry sauce and pecans
and cook until the mixture begins to bubble.

Serving: Remove the foil from the bone ends. Place the roast on a large platter, bones
pointing up. Mound the rice mixture in the center of the roast. Spoon the finishing sauce
all around the bottom of the roast, or in a dish at the side.
