    Summerwine's Note:

    A super Gary Rhodes recipe! Oh so GOOD and a bit different for that weekday meal. I like to serve this with mashed potatoes and a green veggie. I always double this because it is delicious dish that is also great for OAMC. I have modified this to omit the prunes as hubby wasn’t fond of them the first time I prepared this. I also omitted the suet because I feel it just adds more fat to the recipe. If you want to make this exactly like Gary’s recipe, add 6 chopped ready to eat prunes and 4 oz. shredded suet when adding the apples and egg to the minced pork.

      We really liked this! It will become a regular in our house. I made 24 balls because I wanted it to go further, served with homemade applesauce, YUMMMMY.

      YUM!!! these meatballs were amazing and even yummier the next day! thank you summerwine! this has been added to our list of staples and it was very simple to make. i'd never made meatballs before and was a little daunted but your instructions were very clear. the one thing i will change next time is the size of the apple chunks. i cut them a bit too big i think, and when i rolled the meatballs, found they stuck out and made it hard to bind - so ended up picking bits out whilst rolling! but they were really superb!! thank you!

      Fantastic dish, I've never cooked meatballs before and am glad this was the first one I tried, Didn't have a problem shaping the meatballs, but definitely needed delicate turning in the pan. Delicious!
