Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Surprise your guests with these magnificent meatballs. The chili sauce and pineapple turn into a wonderful sauce. We're definitely serving these bite-sized goodies at our next party.

Ingredients

4 jar(s)
homemade chili sauce (brand name) 12 oz each
1 can(s)
crushed pineapple (20 oz can, drained)
1 can(s)
jellied cranberry sauce (14 oz)
1/4 c
golden brown sugar
60 small
frozen meatballs (beef or turkey, i prefer beef)

Mix all ingredients, except meatballs, in a large crock pot. Add frozen meatballs and stir to coat them with sauce. Cook on low for about five hours, carefully stir occasionally. The sauce will caramelize as it cooks.

    I will try the whole berries, thanks for the tip! I have a recipe, from my Grandmother, for the chili sauce. It tastes like the "Homemade" brand chili sauce.
