While the meatballs are cooking, heat the butter on a saucepan over a low heat, stir in the flour and cook until bubbling. Remove from the heat, whisk in the stock, redcurrant jelly, grated nutmeg, Worcestershire sauce and sea salt and black pepper and bring to the boil, stirring all the time and simmer for one minute until thickened.
