Cherry Coke Jalapeno Meatballs

(originally made 2/2012)

Jake is not a fan of red sauce, but Tim wanted meatball subs last night.  I saw Cherry Coke and Jalapeno Meatballs on a blog http://www.kayotic.nl/blog/cherry-coke-jalapeno-meatballs and loved the idea.   I had too many other things going to make meatballs from scratch, so while the frozen ones were doing their thing, I took a cup of Coke, 1/4c juice from a jar of maraschino cherries, 1c brown sugar and a splash of juice from a jar of sliced jalapenos and brought it to a boil.    I cooked it down to a nice syrupy consistency and then poured it over the meatballs for the last 5 mins of cooking.    The regular meatballs sat in the crockpot, and these got devoured.      YUM!
