Mini jam sandwiches coated in batter and deep fried until puffy and golden brown. You may use any jam you like, or try substituting butter and cinnamon sugar for variety. Either way, the ingredients are almost always on hand, and they reheat in the oven well, too. Couldn't be easier, and the kids will love them!
My Mother's family originally came from Sicily and every family member makes his or her own version - this version came most recently via Brooklyn. Use your favorite meat and Italian red wine for this sauce and serve with your favorite pasta. This also is a great pizza sauce if you leave out about half of the meat. If there are any leftovers, they freeze very well. MANGIA!
