(Not even a far distant cousin of Mayonnaise.) Found on a blog somewhere out there in Blogland but I forgot to bookmark it. Always a double take with cardamom whether it be a sweet, or in this case, savory dish: (Cardamom, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways! ...to the depth and breadth and height my soul can reach...!) The meatballs can be prepared with all beef or all lamb if you wish, however, a combination of the two meats is preferred. A couple of changes were made to the recipe.
