Birgit's glazed meatballs

500g mince
2 garlic cloves, chopped
2 shallots, chopped
1/2 cup peas (optional, mod in glutamates)
salt to taste
1 egg
1.5 cups rice bubbles (or 1/2 cup rice flour if gluten-free)
2 tbsp canola oil or butter
2 tbsp homemade pear jam or golden syrup

Combine mince, garlic, shallots, peas, salt, egg and rice bubbles and roll into walnut-size balls. Shallow fry in hot oil. Remove meatballs from frying pan. Reduce heat and put pear jam in pan, stirring until it caramelises (be careful not to burn), put meat balls back in pan and glaze gently with jam, again being careful not to burn. - Birgit
