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!

Tried this today to put on my meatloaf. It was delicious! I used crushed pineapple instead of tidbits, but I don't think it made any difference. Added just a bit more cayenne to give it a little more bite.

Good tasting... a tad too strong for my taste but worth keeping in the recipe box. Thanks for posting.

So good and so easy, there's no reason to EVER buy bottled sweet and sour sauce. I used organic/natural ingredients, so there was none of the high fructose corn syrup that plagues almost all of the commercial brands. The flavor is much, much better than the store-bought, too. This is a keeper! Thanks!
