Evelyn's Sweet and Sour Meatballs

100 mins (prep 40, cooking 60)

This is my grandmother's sweet and sour meatball recipe. For those who like to use up everything, it's a great way to make use of sweet pickle juice - as the pickles are used up, I just save the juice in a jar at the back of the fridge. Easy, quick prep, can be cooked on stove top, in oven or crockpot and can cook meatballs in the sauce or pre-cook in microwave, fry pan or oven. This recipe freezes well and is easily doubled. Also kid-friendly; my 4 year old who is going through the stage of "KD and hotdogs or nothing" eats this without prompting!
