    S.E. Howard's Note:

    I like this a lot better than those recipes that call for pineapple juice. I got it from my Japanese Sensei at school. It's very nummy-yummy.

      It's very, very good. But has anyone noticed the sodium content ? It has 8,702 mg's ! That is over 4x the entire daily allowance of sodium for a healthy person, and over 8x the daily allowance for someone on a restriction ! I made afew modifications to lower the sodium and it still tasted great. These were: nix the 2 teaspoons of salt (the soy sauce has enough and this one step eliminates over 4,000 mg of sodium), next use a low sodium soy sauce ( I use kikkoman's lesser sodium sauce and it actually taste better then their regular version). Next cut the soy sauce amount to 2 or 3 tablespoons instead of 4. Trust me the changes to not really effect the quality of taste in this great sauce, and it cuts the sodium down to just over 2,000 mg. Still high, but tolerable if you only have a little. Great sauce. I would have gave it 5 stars if not for the horrendous amount of sodium in it.

      Love this. Have used it with stir-fries twice now. This will be one of my go-to stir-fry sauces.
