These Grape Jelly Meatballs make a great appetizer or a main dish served rice or pasta. It’s perfectly sweet with a slight hint of heat, making a delicious combination for the palate.
I guess I’m making it a regular tradition that when I have company, they make a recipe and I photograph it and share it with you. Soooo, who’s coming to visit? Haha.
Earlier this year my mother-in-law was in for a visit. (Hi Jeannette!) I had this recipe from her, Mom’s Real Good Meatballs with Grape Sauce. However, some of the specifics were missing… a bottle of this and a bottle of that made me a wee-bit nervous. Haha! So, off to the store we went to buy all of the ingredients. I made notes on my recipe while she did her magic… I had a picture, but it was blurry. Imagine her in a cute apron with a lovely pearl necklace, humming as she worked. It was incredibly sweet!
Within an hour, these mouthwatering bites were ready! Delicious… that grape jelly and chili sauce were such a delicious pairing.
