- 1 3/4 ounces red currant jelly
- 1/4 cup raspberry vinegar
- 3 tablespoons hot sauce (green)
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 1 pound beets (cooked, finely grated)
- 1 apple (eg Pink Lady, halved, cored and grated)
- 1/3 pound butter (divided)
- 1 red onion (peeled and finely diced)
- 1 1/3 cups breadcrumbs (white)
- 1/2 cup milk (divided)
- 1 2/3 pounds ground veal
- 4 tablespoons hot mustard
- 3 egg yolks
- 1/4 cup capers (drained)
- 1 bunch chervil
- 1 pound potatoes (peeled and halved depending on the size)
- 3/4 cup heavy cream
- 4 cups chicken stock
- 1 2/3 cups white wine (eg Riesling)
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- For the salad dressing, heat the red currant jelly and vinegar in a saucepan until the jelly has dissolved. Remove from heat, and pour into a small bowl to cool. Whisk in the hot sauce, a pinch of white pepper and oil. Toss the beets and apple in the dressing and leave to infuse for 1 hour.
- To assemble the meatballs, melt 1 tbsp butter in a small pan and sauté the onions, remove from the heat. Mix the breadcrumbs with 1/4 cup milk. Combine the ground veal, mustard, egg yolks and bread and knead the mixture well. Add the capers, onions, chervil, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp of pepper and knead the mixture again. Divide the mixture into 16 meatballs.
- For the mashed potatoes, cook the potatoes in boiling salted water for about 20 mins. Heat 1/3 cup of milk, 1/3 cup of butter, and 1/8 cup of cream. Drain the potatoes, mash well and mix with the milk and cream mixture.
- Bring the chicken stock and wine to a boil in a large saucepan. Cook the meatballs in batches in the pan for 7 mins, then remove with a slotted spoon and drain well. Pour the stock through a very fine sieve, return it to the pan, add 1/4 cup of butter and 2/3 cup of cream. Mix the cornstarch with a little water, add it to the mixture, and bring back to a boil until thickened. Season to taste and serve the meatballs, sauce and mashed potatoes garnished with chervil.
