Turkish Meatballs with Sour Cherries

For Roland's and Susan's joint birthday party, I made these Turkish meatballs, that I adapted from Sylvia Molnar's cooking class at the Cookshop.

You can find sour cherries in jars at shops that sell Mediterranean groceries such as Parthenon or Bosa. Leftover cherries are great with vanilla yogurt, in strudel or pies!

Instead of trying to stuff the sour cherries into the meatballs (which are an interesting surprise!), you can alternate the meatballs with the cherries on skewers before grilling.
