I've been cooking these meatballs for years (I also found the recipe on the back of a Butterball ground turkey package)! They're the best! My kids used to fight over them when they were young. Use "apple jelly"'s hard to find, but worth it. Apple mint jelly isn't nearly as good (tried it). And, what's with the picture? It looks like dog food with green slime. I'll make it and take a better picture for you. Great served over rice. The sauce is fantastic...double the ingredients. Try this one, you won't regret it!
