Well, it doesn't get any easier than this. Homemade sweet and sour sauce with ingredients that are always readily available. This has the right balance of sweet and sour and was good on egg rolls, fried wontons and the chicken skewers. I used Splenda to make it more diabetic friendly. Made for November 2012 Aus/NZ Swap.

I was looking for a sweet and sour sauce that I could make on short notice with ingredients I had on hand, and this worked out perfectly. I left out the salt because soy sauce is already salty enough. Great flavor and very easy to make.

I recently ran out of sweet and sour dipping sauce a few days ago and had springrolls as is. I happen to pass this by, mixed the ingredients making sure to remove the lumps, zipped it in the microwave for 1 1/2 minute, quickly stirred it and there it was, a thick sauce, not salty, just right, not too sour nor too sweet. In fact, a bit milder than the bottled sauce. Went well with the springrolls that we're having again today. Should have found this sooner! Thanks, Chickee. :) Made for Aus Recipe Swap #29.

This sauce was simple to make with ingredients which I had on hand. It was nothing at all like the red sauce in Chinese restaurants, however. It was pretty good, but I won't be making it again.

Yum! Sometimes I find bought / Chinese restaurant sweet and sauce sauce a little too sugary and sweet but thought this was spot on.

This is now my go-to Sweet and Sour Dipping Sauce. Made as directed, although I can see using chili sauce for the tomato sauce as I usually have that on hand over ketchup. Thanks, Chickee! Made for Aussie New Zealand Recipe Swap.
