Sweet and Sour Meatballs

This is the recipe I like to take to potlucks and the recipe I share when asked for a favorite.  It's equally liked by adults and kids.  I cheat and use frozen meatballs, but it would be even better if you were willing to make your own!

Place the meatballs in the slow cooker.

Combine the next six ingredients and pour over the meatballs.

Cook on low for 4 hours. 

Sweet and Sour Meatballs can be served over rice or egg noodles.

* Cook's Note - This recipe also works well in the oven.  Place the meatballs in a 9 x 13 pan and pour the sauce over the top.  Cook at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
