November 17: Candied Meatballs

A few years ago I helped cook the dinner for my missionary reunion (California Ventura Mission 1979-1981). This was one of the items on the menu. It was a hit that night and is a hit with my children also. It is so simple! And the ingredients seem so unusual together. Trust me, it is delicious.

1 12 oz jar chili sauce

1 12 oz jar grape jelly

1 TB lemon juice

20-30 precooked meatballs or sausage

Combine chili sauce, grape jelly, and lemon juice in saucepan cooking on medium heat stirring until hot. Add 20-30 meatballs or sausages and simmer 20-30 minutes. Serve warm.

**This can also be cooked in a slow cooker for several hours on low.
