1 qt water

Ingredients: SAUCE: Add the qt. of water to the reserved fat along with thecatsup. Make a paste of the sauce ingredients, stirring in the water to get a consistency of a thin cream. After the water-catsup mixture is warm, slowly add this mixture, stirring constantly to avoid lumping, until the mixture has been well absorbed into the liquid. Cook gently until the sauce is slightly thickened. Place meatball in the pan, or in an oven-proof roaster and make sure they are covered with the sauce. Cover pan and bake in hot oven for 1 hour.
