Hats off to Grandma Evelyn. :) I mean really, what are you suppose to do with pickle juice? I'd never given it much thought until now. This is an amazing sweet & sour sauce. Just perfect especially since it uses something that generally gets dumped down the drain. The fact that it can simmer all day is a bonus too. I made a double batch of both the sauce and the meat. I had 38 meatballs and 1 meatloaf, which I baked with the sauce on top. I did find the meat mixture quite wet, so added about 1/2 cup of panko breadcrumbs. Worked like a charm. Thanks so much Morleah's Mom for sharing your family recipe. ;) Honoured to make this as a "Thank You" for voting for Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia in the 2010 Kraft Hockeyville Competition.
I added bread and butter pickles slices and pineapple to the sause. Yummy
totally the best most sensible recipe ever !!!!!!!
