Pineapple Sweet and Sour Sauce

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Kittencal@recipezazz

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.
