    GiddyUpGo's Note:

    This recipe is from week 14 of my food blog, "Travel by Stove." I am attempting to cook one meal from every nation on Earth, and Aruba is my 14th stop. This simple appetizer is made with ground ham and a simple glaze of apricot-pineapple jam.

      I had to add 2 extra eggs, just to make it hold together. Using a 1.25" scoop, I got 4 dozen balls. I used mango preserves as that is what I had on hand. I like the flavor, but as you can see from my picture, they absolutely fell apart. As I was taking them to a pot luck, they are in a rice cooker (I use that as it has a handle and is easy to carry). The flavor is still good, just not neat balls. I could only give it 3 starts as it fell apart, even after extra eggs.
