Spiced Lamb Meatballs with Barberries & Mint Yogurt

Barberries - a small, dried, tart  fruit - add a sweet and sour twist to this Eastern Mediterranean take on the traditional Italian meatball. A spice blend including mint, along with the use of ground lamb and a Greek yogurt garnish elevate the dish to a brand new level of globally-inspired flavor.
