  • Meanwhile, prepare the glaze. In a food processor, combine 1 black garlic clove, peeled, along with the Balsamic Glaze, honey, olive oil, and pomegranate molasses. Whirl in a food processor until smooth.
  • Once the meatballs are done, take out with a spatula and put on plate, then brush with the glaze.
