Ham Balls

2 pounds of ham loaf mix, or 1 pound ground ham and 1 pound ground pork
2 large Shredded Wheat biscuits, crumbled
2 eggs
1 cup milk

1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
2/3 cup water
3/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons vinegar

Mix together meat, crumbled cereal, eggs and milk with hands or electric mixer. Form mixture into 18 to 28 balls; place in 13-by-9-inch baking pan. Meanwhile, bring syrup ingredients to a boil in saucepan, reduce heat and boil gently for 4 minutes. Pour syrup over ham balls. Bake, uncovered in preheated 350-degree oven for 1 hour 10 minutes, or until brown. (No need to baste or turn over.)

For longer cooking, bake in preheated 200- or 250-degree oven for 3 to 4 hours. To cut recipe in half, bake in an 8-by-8-inch or 9-by-9-inch baking dish.
