We had a sweet and sour taste testing! I made my favorite meatballs and several different sweet and sour sauces.
I kept seeing the grape jelly/chili sauce recipe. It didn't appeal to me but I just had to try it. I first couldn't find the chili sauce. So I used sweet chili sauce (the one with the chili flakes in it), which is used for an Asian sauce. It was really spicy as the sweet chili sauce is quite zippy. It was good but I could really taste the grape jelly. Maybe it was just because I made them because everyone else couldn't specifically taste the grape jelly.
We all liked the sauce but it wasn't the sweet and sour sauce I was looking for. I made this version last week so there are no pictures of it.
Then I found the Heinz Chili Sauce that all these recipes call for. So I made the grape jelly and chili sauce version. I used about 1 part jelly to 1 part chili sauce.
We liked this but I could still taste the grape jelly, not as much though. I think I might have liked this more if there was more sauce. I covered the meatballs in the sauce and then finished them up in the oven so the sauce cooked on the meatballs so it wasn't overly saucy.
