I have tried endless sweet and sour grape jelly recipes and hated them all. This easy recipe is AMAZING. The sauce is perfect at first, but when the weenies release liquid, it gets runny. I fix this by starting them simmering on the stove for the first 45 min, and then transferring only the weenies to a crock pot while leaving the sauce on the stove. I turn up the heat pretty high while constantly stirring to reduce the sauce to a thick consistency before adding it to the crock pot with the weenies (5 min or so? ). I also have used Nathans hot dogs cut up when I did not have Lil smokies on hand it that is pretty good too. I LOVE this sauce.

Absolutely love this recipe. When you have picky kids around it is hard to get them to try new things but my nieces and nephews LOVED these. The sauce is absolutely amazing and delicious. Extremely easy to make.

I took cookingbrides advice and she was right. Made this last minute for an office potluck and they were a hit. Glad I read her pop-up review.

The taste is perfect; I was disappointed that the thick sauce turned to pure liquid when heated. I made 1 1/2 times the recipe with 3 pkgs. of Smokies, and I took this to a 'Bring-Two-Appetizers' Meal for our extended family of 11. They devoured all of it! Great recipe!

I use this recipe regularly. It's not overly sweet like the jelly recipes. I usually add either some cayenne or red pepper flakes to spice up a bit. Jalopeno slices also make nice addition.
