"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Ingredients:  
Meatball mixture:
1 lb. Bavarian or honey cured deli ham, sliced very thin, then chopped or cut into 1/4" pieces.
1/2 lb. ground fresh pork
1 1/2 - 2 cups bread crumbs
2 well beaten large eggs
1 cup milk
Sauce:
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 cup water

Directions:
Directions:
Chop or cut the ham so that the pieces are small (1/4" or smaller). Mix the ham, ground pork, bread crumbs (1 1/2 to 2 cups), eggs and milk. The amount of bread crumbs varies, but you want 'meatloaf' consistency. Form the meat mixture into 1" meatballs. [Don't make the meatballs large, because you want the sauce to absorb]. Place them in a foil-lined 13 x 9 baking dish. To make the sauce, mix the brown sugar, dry mustard, vinegar and water in a saucepan and bring to a slight boil enough to make sure the sugar is dissolved. Lightly boil for a couple of minutes. Let cool to warm temperature. Pour the sauce over the meatballs and bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour, basting occasionally with the sauce.
