Odd Recipes

A friend was going through a recipe file that her mother had given her. Specifically, her mother typed them into a computer, printed them out on individual cards, then put them in a file and gave them to her daughter.

Which is nice except for some of the recipes, which look completely inedible. Some of the worst:

Sweet 'N' Sour Hot Dogs
1 lb. cocktail hot dogs
2/3 c chili sauce
2/3 c currant jelly

Combine chili sauce and jelly. Pour over hot dogs. Heat stirring occasionallly till jelly is melted. Simmer about 10 min till sauce has thickened; baste occasionally.

Hot Dogs Sweet and Sour II
3/4 c. ketchup
1 c. grape jelly
1 lb hot dogs

Slice hot dogs in pieces and add to sauce. Heat thru.

Mmm. That's sum good eats right there.

I don't think I've got the courage to try it.

I've had similar recipes at parties, usually hot barbecue sauce and grape jelly. It actually tastes very good, sort of ying and yang, sweet and tangy hot.

Hmm. Maybe I'll give it a go, at least for chili sauce and currant jelly.

Grape jelly and ketchup still sound gross.
