      Hubby and I both really liked these meatballs. I can never really get very many comments from him on all the different dishes I make, but he did say these are good. They really have an unusual flavor, not too sweet and not too spicy. Easy too.

      Kirby these meatballs were delicious. We really enjoyed the beautiful flavor that the grape jelly imparted to the dish. I used Welchs grape jam, a chunky sweet chili sauce and added some hot Habanero sauce to it also for a little heat. What a lovely treat this was. The meatballs were perfectly cooked, tender and juicy and the tasty glaze covered the meatballs beautifully. This is a dish that I will make again and again...I served mine over steamed coconut rice...Thanks so much for sharing a new family favourite. Kudos....bk

      I love the Feed Me Bubbe podcast! She's like the grandmother I never had (mine was very glamorous and couldn't cook at all). Grape jelly doesn't really exist in Israel except as a very expensive import, so I used apricot jam. I did spring for the Heinz chili sauce import, though. Delicious, even my picky picky daughters were licking their fingers. I served this over couscous for lunch yesterday and it was a hit. Thanks!
