swedish meatballs with lingonberry sauce


to serve as an hors d'oeuvre, don't make this gravy, but buy a jar or two of lingonberry sauce from your favorite market or an ikea store. the tart-sweetness of the sauce plays perfect counterpoint to the tender savory meatballs. or make the mock lingon with cranberry sauce recipe below.
