Chicken Broth Concentrate
Before starting, preheat the oven to 450˚F. Wash and dry all produce. Halve potatoes (if larger, quarter them). Add potatoes, 2 tsp salt and enough water to cover (approx. 1 inch) to a large pot (use same for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium. Simmer uncovered until potatoes are fork-tender, 10-12 min.
Meanwhile, peel, then halve carrot lengthwise, then cut into 1/4-inch half-moons. Finely chop cranberries.
Meanwhile, add pork, breadcrumbs and 1/4 tsp salt (dbl for 4 ppl) to a large bowl. Season with pepper, then combine. (TIP: If you prefer a firmer meatball, add an egg to the mixture!) Roll mixture into 12 equal-sized meatballs (24 for 4 ppl). Transfer meatballs to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake in the middle of the oven until cooked through, 10-12 min.**
Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl) and swirl the pan until melted, 30 sec. Add carrots, green peas, 1/4 tsp salt and 3 tbsp water (dbl for 4 ppl). Stir together. Season with pepper. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until veggies are tender and water has been absorbed, 5-6 min. Remove the pan from heat. Transfer veggies to a plate and cover to keep warm.
Add 1/3 cup water (1/2 cup for 4 ppl), broth concentrate, honey, Dijon and cranberries to the same pan. Season with pepper, then stir to combine. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Once simmering, cook, stirring often, until glaze thickens slightly, 2-3 min. When meatballs are done, add to the pan with glaze. Toss to coat.
When potatoes are tender, drain and return potatoes to the same pot. Mash cream and 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl) into potatoes until creamy. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Divide mash and veggies between plates. Top mash with meatballs and any remaining glaze from the pan.
