    Can substitute dried cranberries for dried sour cherries.

    I thought these were good, but they didn't quite live up to my expectations. They are definitely tasty - I think I found them almost too spiced.

    Yummy. Would use this tomato sauce for other recipes, it is soooo good.

    I made these tonight for the family. After the apricot & fennel ones from Sirocco the bar was set high and I was not disappointed. Excellent flavour and texture, I served them with couscous. I used the suggested cranberries instead of sour cherries and dried dill as I was out of fresh. I used marinara sauce as I didn't have time to make the one Ms Ghayour suggests.

    These are so good! Lightest meatballs I have ever made.
