    1       tb           Sugar
    1       t            Pickling spices, mixed
 
   Combine ground beef and pork (I used veal too),
   chopped onion, crumbs, 1 tsp of the salt, pepper and
   nutmeg in a medium size bowl until blended. Separate
   eggs, putting whites into a large bowl and yolks into
   a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate the yolks. Beat
   whites until they form soft peaks; fold into meat
   mixture. Shape into 1-inch balls and place in an
   electric slow cooker. (I browned these slightly in a
   skillet). Combine beef broth, water, quartered onion,
   vinegar, sugar, pickling spices and remaining 1/2 tsp
   salt in a small saucepan. Bring to boil, lower heat
   and simmer 15 minutes; strain into slow cooker; cover.
   (Do same- pour into skillet, reduce heat, cover). Cook
   on low (190 to 200 degrees) 5 hours; remove meat balls
   to a heated deep platter and keep warm. (I cooked the
   meatballs for about one hour in the skillet). Turn
   heat control to high (290 to 300 degrees). Combine 1
   Tbsp all-purpose flour with 2 Tbsp cold water in a
   cup; stir into liquid in cooker until smooth; cover.
   Cook 15 minutes. Beat the saved egg yolks with a fork;
   beat in 1 cup of hot sauce; return to cooker; cook 5
   minutes; then pour over meat balls. (Increase heat,
   add flour & water mixture and simmer until thickened.
   Follow above instructions for adding the egg yolks).
   Garnish with lemon slices and capers; serve with
   boiled parslied From Sallie Krebs - Happy Cookin'!
