I have used this recipe several times. Everyone loved it! Better and differnt than the usual sauce we have been using to make our meatballs. This is great!

I made my own meatballs. I used a can of sliced pineapple, and cut into 1 inch pieces. I used dark brown sugar, in place of brown sugar. Tasty, simple, but will try again with pork.
