“I searched thru 3 pages of Sweet & Sour Meatball recipes to make sure this was unique and I think it is. I got this recipe from a lovely woman named Iola back in 1973. It is still a favorite and requested by friends and family alike. You can use your own meatball recipe, or if you're like me...I sometimes run out of time and I use frozen already prepared meatballs.”
