Sweet and Sour Plum Meatballs

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by MizEmerilLagasse

I made this one morning to be a make-ahead dinner for my family, and it ended up in the refrigerator over night and then eaten the next day due to someone just having to eat out that night at their favorite resturaunt (mom! lol). It was perfectly fine though and the next night that we got to have them they were GREAT. I would almost recommend you let them sit the refrigerator for a while. It's like the marinate when they do.

Yummy and spicy. I'm on a quest to use the homemade plum jam taking up space in my cabinet, and this recipe was a great find. Served with brown rice for dinner, but would be wonderful as appetizers. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
