2 lb. hamburger
2 slices wet bread
2 eggs
1/2 onion (finely chopped)
salt and pepper

Mix all ingredients together and make small meatballs. Put in pan (use either Dutch oven or large fry pan with cover)

1 12 oz bottle chili sauce
1 12 oz. bottle water
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup grape jelly
1/2 large onion chopped
1/4 cup lemon juice

Mix all ingredients together and pour over meatballs.
Bring to boil and then turn down to simmer for 1 1/2 hours.
DO NOT STIR for the first 15 minutes
Then stir to prevent from sticking
Pan should be covered while cooking

NOTE: Use lean hamburger as possible
This will still have a lot of grease on top which can spoon off or let the meatballs cool off and put in the refrigerator overnight.
Most of the grease will harden on top and you can take it off before reheating.
