Little hint for rolling meatballs more quickly: try rolling two balls in the palm of your hand at a time. Learnt this technique when making tons of chocolate truffles. Actually produces a rounder ball. Takes a bit of practice, but once you've nailed it, you'll never go back :)

Great tip -- sounds like a fun challenge.

Like the mint idea -- and like the compliment, too. Thanks, Rhonda!

These sound delicious - I love the idea of the Middle Eastern flavor influences without the lamb - as a caterer, I find that so many clients shy away from lamb and this would be a great way to add some variety yet keep clients happy. If I were serving these at a party, they only change I'd make would be to skewer a small mint leaf between the meatball and the grape. Amanda, completely unrelated to the food, I just wanted to tell you that you look so pretty in this video! The blue-grey color of your top suits you and you have an alabaster glow going! ;-)
