I almost always try a recipe as is before I alter it to my taste, however I couldn't wait to try this one so I used what I had on hand. First, I used ground turkey instead of beef, second I used apricot pineapple preserves instead of grape jelly. I did decide last minute to brown the meatballs in a skillet before putting them in the slow cooker. The balls, which I formed using a cookie scoop, didn't seem too sturdy and I wasn't convinced that they wouldn't fall apart. They simmered for an hour and a half and the sauce still seemed kind of watery so I cranked it up to high with the lid off so it could reduce some for about 30 to 45 more minutes. They were really yummy. My hubby rated it a 9 out of 10 and insisted that he take some to his buddy. I only got one :o(. I will surely make this again, next time I'll try it as is.
