      Very good, but I did make some changes. I was afraid the meatballs would be dry without added liquid, so I added a splash of milk also a tbsp. of parsley just for color. Instead of frying in a pan I baked them at 325 for 25 mn. Then put them in the small crock pot. Meanwhile,I heated the preserves and BBQ sauce in a saucepan, poured it over the meatballs, but found it needed more sauce, so doubled that. Thanks for posting this yummy appetizer!
