This sounds like a quick and easy way of experimenting with new flavors. I found the recipe in the Spring 2008 copy of BBC Easy Cook magazine. The recipe says that it is suitable for freezing.

    As I often do with ercipes that require a lot of tomatoes (whether as chopped, sauced or 'pasted') I added a bit of baking soda here along with everything else! Absolutely enjoyed this sauce, what with the cinnamon & apricots! Will definitely make these again! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed while with ZWT6]

    These were great meatballs. Really easy to fix and went over great with the family. I kept thinking maybe a "tad" of Splenda (or sugar) could be added, to cut down the acidity of the tomatoes. Thanks so much- really "dresses up" plain meatballs. Made for ZWT6 and the Xtra Hot Dishes.
