    This recipe was printed in the Spring 2007 edition of Cooking for 2. I needed soy sauce today and gave it a try. It is pretty good and lower in sodium.

      All week I've been making recipes calling for soy sauce and I was out and the winter weather was too bad to go out into. I had to substitute with teriyaki sauce. Now that I found this recipe none of the recipes I'm making are calling for soy sauce, story of my life. But I made up a half batch for the future. The vinegar made it taste salty so I added more molasses to make it more sweet. Does it taste like my La Choy soy sauce, no but I've put it in an empty La Choy bottle and I bet no one else will be able to tell. Sometimes you just need to outsmart them.

      This is one of the best finds I made this year :D Finally I can cook Asian dishes for myself and others without depriving them completely from the soy sauce taste. As I could not find beef bouillon without either yeast extract or celery, I just used boiling water and sea salt instead of bouillon, and it worked wonderfully. Thanks so much for posting this winner!

      Very simple.It seemed to work just fine when I used it for a recipe that requires soy sauce.Since I didn't have any on hand I used this and my hubby didn't complain and that is because he is pretty picky.I will be using this again and I love the idea that it is lower in sodium compared to the store bought one.
