Homemade Sweet & Sour Sauce

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Darlene Summers

This is a real good sweet & sour sauce--full of chunky little tidbits that are so good. It makes about 3 cups. It will stay good in the fridge for about 3 or 4 days.

I substituted 3/4 cup stevia for sugar and chopped grape tomatoes for canned. I also used the 20oz can of pineapple and realized too late the recipe called for 8oz can. Made plenty and was delicious. May have been sweet enough without added sweetener.
