SHORT Ribs: Season flour with salt and pepper. Dust ribs with flour mixture. Heat oil in large braising pan. Add ribs; cook until evenly browned. Remove from pan.

ADD onions, carrots and celery to pan; cook until caramelized. Add garlic and fruit peels; cook 2 min. Deglaze pan with wine; simmer 2 min. Add remaining ingredients. Return ribs to pan. (Liquid should cover ribs halfway in pan.) Cover.

BAKE in 300ºF-convection oven 3 hours or until meat begins to fall off bones. Remove ribs from pan; cool. Remove meat from bones; shred meat. Discard bones.

STRAIN braising liquid; discard vegetables. Return braising liquid to saucepan; cook 15 min. or until slightly thickened, skimming fat occasionally. Return meat to liquid; keep warm.

CHERRY-MUSTARD Aioli: Cover cherries with boiling water. Let stand 5 min.; drain.

MEANWHILE, saute garlic in oil until golden brown; cool.

PROCESS mayonnaise, mustards, cherries and garlic (with oil) in food processor until well blended. Refrigerate until ready to use.

CRISPY Shallots: Mix flour, salt and pepper. Dip shallots in buttermilk, then in flour mixture.

COOK in 350ºF-deep fryer 2 to 3 min. or until golden brown. Drain well.
