This went great with the chicken bites I made tonight! Just the right sweet with sour. My daughter loves s&s sauce, so we will be making this often! Thanks!

Although I am used to and love the restaurant-style/pineapple type of sweet sauce, this has made a convert of me! Made this to go with homemade fried rice and chow mein, and it is spectacular! Thanks for a great recipe.

Good consistency, color and balance of sweet and sour. Vinegar flavor comes through too strongly, however. May try lemon juice instead of red wine vinegar next time.

I used this for the sweet and sour pork dish I made and it was quite nice! I battered the pork pieces with Aroostook's "Batter for Sweet and Sour Shrimp" Batter for Sweet and Sour Shrimp, then fried those, then stir-fried them with green peppers, onions, and carrots and the sweet and sour sauce to finish the dish. I will definitely make this again, perhaps with other sweet and sour dishes, and even as a dipping sauce for dim sum. Thanks for a great recipe!

This is quite good and very easy to prepare. Made sweet and sour chicken with it and thoroughly enjoyed it. My DD thought it was a little too strong with the orange flavor, so next time we will try it with pineapple juice to see how that turns out!

Made this sauce with a sweet and sour pork dinner... Definitely tasty, if a little heavy on the vinegar taste... Added a little more orange juice and sugar to make it sweeter. Will make this again. Thanks!

This was my first venture in trying sweet and sour sauce recipes, and I enjoyed it with some shrimp gyoza today for lunch. Nice blend, and the orange flavor is a tasty standout.

This sauce was okay but my husband and I both thought the vinegar was wayyyy too strong. I like vinegar, but the ACV dominated the flavor of the sauce. I would recommend only using half of the ACV and omitting the red wine vinegar all together.

DD made this for us tonight as we were out. We liked this with our eggrolls. I did sub pineapple juice for the o.j. since I had some in the fridge. I will make this again to get us out of a pinch. Thank you for sharing this with us.
