    SilentCricket's Note:

    This is Indonesian soy sauce; slightly thicker and sweeter than regular soy sauce. If you cannot buy commercial Ketjap manis in your local market, you can follow this recipe. I use it in my "Barbecued Roast Beef" recipe, for a marinade base, and in spicy peanut sauce.

      I made 1/3 the recipe (1 cup) for my Asian cooking. Used in Nasi Goreng and enjoyed the sweet-salty taste. I will be storing in the fridge to use in Bourbon Chicken also. I love that I can "make" the condiments to keep on hand. Made in memory of Silent Cricket.

      All I can say is WOW!!!! This is so yummy! I made it to use in a recipe I saw on TV yesterday and it's all I can do not to eat this straight with a spoon! I decreased the molasses (used 4T of fancy) and it's wonderful. I do a lot of asian inspired cooking and won't be without this wonderful condiment in my fridge from now on! Thanks for posting!

      Incredibly easy, and has a distinctive sweet-salty taste that should lend itself well to Bourbon Chicken #305109. It was a lot faster to make than all the stores I checked in vain! I plan to revisit this review after I have made Bourbon Chicken. Made for Asian Forum's Cooking with Sauces Tag.
