    Kate 8:)'s Note:

    This incredibly yummy meatball recipe disappears quickly at parties. I found it on the back of a package of Armour meatballs. I use more cinnamon than is called for--at least 2 tsp.

      We had to rush around and find something late last night that could be thrown together quickly for dh to take to a work potluck. He decided meatballs in the crockpot would be easy, but I didn't want to do the "same ole, same ole" grape jelly BBQ meatballs. I lucked into this recipe on the back of the bag, and dh said it got rave reviews. I cooked them on the stovetop last night, and then he just took them to work and kept them on low all morning. He and I split one last night, and it was really yummy! It's almost like a sweet and sour kind of flavor, with just the tiniest little kick to it. The apricots really tone down the spiciness of the salsa. They're really good!

      Delicious! I always make these in the crockpot, and I always let them cook for at least three hours on high. Great over white rice with sugar snap peas on the side.
