My mother in law was named Judy . ( she passed away a few years ago..)and this recipe caught my eye because it reminded me of a meatball recipe that she used to make. It is here for safe keeping-from a vintage recipe website. I would make this as an appetizer or serve this over rice.

  4. Cook over low heat until cranberry sauce dissolves.
