Meatballs, Sweet-and-Sour V (M, TNT)
Source: "Let My People Eat," by Zell Schulman
Serves: 8

1 cup pickled vegetables with liquid
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup applesauce
1 cup cold water
1 8-ounce can tomato sauce

2 pounds ground meat (turkey, veal, beef, or a mix)
2 large eggs
1 small onion, minced
1/4 cup matzo meal
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Make Sauce:
Place the sauce ingredients in a large saucepan or a Dutch oven. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to low and cook the sauce for 20 minutes.

Make Meatballs and Assembly:
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix the ground meat, eggs, onion, matzo meal, and cayenne pepper together. Form into small balls.

Add the meatballs to the pan with the sauce. Cover and cook over medium-low heat for 30 minutes. Gently shake the pan after 15 minutes so the meatballs on the top settle down into the sauce.

This recipe can be doubled for a large crowd and freezes well.

Poster's Notes:
You can find these jars of pickled peppers and vegetables in the kosher food section or the deli section of your supermarket.
