This is my husband's recipe for Sweet & Sour Chicken. You can substitute in pork or omit all meat references and then can the sauce for storage. Makes approx 1 quart of sweet and sour sauce.

YUMMY! We really liked this. I left out the cherries and added half an onion. I didn't use the full amount of brown sugar since we don't like really sweet things. I served it over leftover white rice. This was a good one! Will make again and again. Made for PAC Fall 2009.
