Ham Balls in Raisin Sauce



Ham Balls:

lbs lean ground pork

1 lb ground ham

2 cups coarsely crushed cracker crumbs

2 eggs beaten

1 cup milk

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon MSG

Raisin Sauce:

cups brown sugar

2 teaspoons dry mustard

1 cup vinegar

1 cup water

1 cup raisins


Combine all ham ball ingredients, mix well, and chill until it is stiff enough to shape into meatballs.

Make the meatballs. I use a 2 tablespoon disher for this. You should get about 45 or so.

Place in 400°F oven on broiler rack so grease will drain off and brown for about 20 minutes.

Make the raisin sauce by combining all ingredients.

Place meatballs in loaf or casserole pan, top with raisin sauce, cover, and cook for 1 to 1½ hours at 350°F, turning occasionally.
