(originally made 2/2012)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.
