The meatballs were a bit on the salty side so I'm going to use just half the amount of salt next time I make these. I used hot pepper jelly instead of the currant jelly and they were delicious! Next time I'm going to try the citrus marmalade :)

I use the currant jelly/chili sauce combo for my Sweet n Sour kielbasa (recipe on this site) I've been making it for YEARS and it's so simple! Can go right in the Crockpot...I love this sauce!
