How to make Pork & Blueberry Meatballs

This is a really simple mixture that can be served as meatballs (interesting topping for pasta), made into meatloaf or even used as a wicked, fusion-style gyoza filling if you add some chopped savoy cabbage.

This recipe works much, much better with cranberries. I didn't have a pic of the cranberry mixture handy though - will update the title and pic when I do!

  1. Bash together some garlic, rosemary, olive oil, salt and peppercorns in a pestle and mortar.

  2. In a nice big mixing bowl, combine your pork mince, rosemary-garlic paste, a spoon of whole-grain mustard and some seasoning.

  3. Roughly chop your berries and add to the mix.

  4. Add a good handful of breadcrumbs and egg white to bind the mixture.

  5. Use however you like! Usually I make the mixture into meatballs, sauté them with cherry tomatoes and lay it on a swirl of basic genovese pasta.

    The mixture is vastly improved by adding some roughly-chopped chestnuts. Adds a lovely bit of nuttyness to the sweet, savoury taste.

    Instead of chesnuts, for a smoother nuttiness you can also try pine nuts (jobe's tears) and get a bit of asian kick to it.

    I was going to try this recipe but was slightly disappointed to learn that cranberries work much better. I love blueberries...

    I added ground veal (I know, I know) and cranberries to this, but instead of meatballs I made fried dumplings. Delish!
