    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is an simple yet delicious sauce that will go well with many different things, you may omit the pineapple tidbits if desired, and if you are not a lover of garlic you may omit that too ----this sauce goes well with my Kittencal's Chinese Chicken Balls With Sweet and Sour Sauce

      I tried this recipe for a chinese birthday party i was throwing. Everyone loved it. They didn't think it tasted like sweet and sour sauce they have had before but they really liked it anyways. I'm not sure if i used exact measurements or not so maybe that had a little to do with it. The second day, it tasted really pineapple-ly to me. Next time i will only use a very little of the actual pineapple peices in mine...but i will try this recipe again. Like I said, it was a BIG hit at the party.

      Definitely a recipe I want to keep on file! I followed it right down the line, although I did attempt to make sure that the crushed pineapple & diced tomatoes were also 'finely chopped' [trying to chop crushed pineapple is an experience, but I did have a very sharp knife]! Anyway, the result is OUTSTANDING, & I intend to encourage people to use it on poultry, fish, pork, crackers...whatever! Many thanks for posting it!

      Wonderful Sweet and Sour Sauce! Very sweet with nice bits of pineapple throughout. I did not use the green pepper and served this with my crunchy shrimp wonton. I can't wait to try this with your Chicken Balls! A definite keeper!
