Made this for a Polynesian-themed wedding party. I tripled the ingredients and made it the day before. On Wedding Day, we heated it up on the grill in a covered aluminum pan. Guests smeared it on their Roast Pork, Grilled Chicken, Pork Sausage, and Kielbasa....sorry, no leftovers...Amazing sauce!!!!....should have made a bigger batch. Thanks for sharing.
Quite tasty! I always like a lot, and since your recipe has a nice easy proportion, I just replaced the word tablespoons with cups. I did not though, use 1 cup of cornstarch, I pretty much always thicken by eye, as from past experiences have learnt of cornstarch's almost exponential potential. I didnt have canned pineapple, so I used about 3/4 of a whole fresh one. Since I had used cups instead of tablespoons, I pretty much would have had to added 18 cups of juice, which seemed a tad gratuitous. I added the juice to taste really, and found a nice medium, and really enjoyed it, I achieved exactly what I was going for. I will, tomorrow, try the exact recipe, as I am interested to taste how the flavors compare. I recommend adding the part about the reserve juice plus the water into the ingredient listing. Not a huge deal but when glancing at a recipe, its good to see what you "need" in that nice little area. :) Just so you know I served it with tempura fried scallops and shrimp! It was a huge hit! I called it "Scallopolynesian Islands"! Yeahh silly I know, but the funnier you make it the more the waiters will sell it! Thanks again!
