Sweet and Sour Meatballs

This is a conversion from Mum's old hand written cook book.  I grew up eating this meal quite regularly and the whole family loved it! I make it for my family now and they love it too.  Of course, I had to convert it for ThermOMG.   Feel free to add a chilli or two when making the sauce if you want a bite or a more adult version.
