- Place roast on rack in shallow pan, rib bones up. Season with salt and pepper. Wrap rib bones in foil. Make a ball of aluminum foil and press into the middle to keep cavity open. Roast uncovered in 325ºF (160ºC) oven for 1 hour, basting occasionally with pan juices.
- Remove from oven, remove foil and fill centre with stuffing. Cover stuffing with small piece of foil and continue roasting an additional 1/2 hour or until meat thermometer registers 160ºF (70ºC). Remove foil and allow roast to rest for 10 minutes. To serve, slice between the bones.
- To make stuffing: In small saucepan, simmer apricots and juice for 5 minutes until fruit is soft. Melt butter in a large nonstick pan. Add onion and celery and cook until soft. Place in a large bowl and toss with remaining ingredients.
- Sauce: Combine sauce ingredients in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat. Serve over slices of crown roast.
