Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Aren’t these beautiful?  They are some of my mom’s flowers.  She loves tulips and has a bunch in beautiful colors in her kitchen.

Sweet and sour meatballs have been a favorite family recipe for years.  I really enjoy them and they always turn out right, which is not true of everything I make.  Last week I had a few abysmal failures.

These meatballs are delicious and easy to make.  I would love to hear how they work for you, if you make them.
