Preheat the oven to 190°C.
Peel and chop the vegetables into large pieces.
Place the chopped vegetables in a large saucepan. Add the spare ribs, thyme, bay leaf, cloves, juniper berries and a large pinch of salt. Cover with water, bring to the boil and cook for 15 minutes. Remove the ribs from the pan.
Heat the honey in a saucepan until very hot and liquid. Add the soy sauce and coat the ribs. Transfer to a tray, cover with foil and cook for 30 minutes at 190°C. Regularly spoon the honey and soy sauce over the ribs to glaze.
Cut all of the vegetables into 5mm dice.
Place the sugar in a pan and melt, without stirring, to make a caramel. Add the red onion and cook until soft. Add the carrot, turnip, radish and the tomatoes. Cook for 3 minutes.
Serve the ribs with the caramelised vegetables.
