From Top Secret Recipes A copycat version of McDonald's Sweet and Sour sauce. I don't know about anyone else, but our McDonald's has started charging for sauce packets. From now on I think I'll make our nuggets and sauce. I found this recipe at another website.

McDonald's is the only place where I get my sweet and sour sauce from, and it seems like they never give you enough. I was very skeptical to try this recipe because of how much I love the original, but it was amazing. It tastes EXACTLY like the kind they give you. I doubled the recipe and filled a jar of it so I never run out

THANK YOU THANK YOU~~ This is just the best. My 4 kids wanted McDonalds only for the sauce, now I make it at home with my homemade nuggets!! IT IS THE BEST!! I keep it in a squirt bottle in the refrigerator, they can use it when they need it! YUM YUM

Definitely a keeper! I only had apple cider vinegar, but otherwise followed this recipe exactly, and it's Great! All of my kids love it too (which says a lot, ten out of ten!) so I made a triple batch and stored in a mason jar for future use. Thanks for this recipe!
