    Krsi Sue's Note:

    I made Crab Rangoon last night & needed a quick sweet and sour sauce & didn't have time to run to the computer to find one here on Zaar. So, here is my concoction. My husband loved it!

      What a wonderful idea! I also needed to come up with a quick sweet and sour sauce, but I had time to run to Zaar, and this recipe is what I found. The cherries I had on hand weren't maraschino (just a can of plain Bing cherries), but they seemed to do the job. It's a really outstanding sauce that I'll definitely make again, next time with the maraschino cherries.

      This is easy and delicious with a gourmet taste and gorgeous color. The currants make quite an impact so you'd never know it contains maraschino cherries. I wasn't sure whether to buy red or black currant jelly but I went for the red. Next time I'll start with less cornstarch rather than thickening and then thinning it down again but I'll definitely make this again.
