A quick homemade sweet and sour sauce for dipping or to add to your main dish.
- Combine all ingredients.
- If using as a sauce in a dish you are cooking, just stir and add to pan a few minutes before service.
- Then cook over med-high heat stirring constantly until sauce thickens and takes on a'glazed' appearance (1- 2 minutes).
- If using as a dipping sauce, combine ingredients in a small saucepan and cook over medium heat stirring constantly until sauce boils.
- Boil and stir 1 minute.
- Keep warm for dipping.
I made this and served Egg Rolls with it. Although not a sweet and sour fan, this was very good. I'll use the recipe again. BDavis - Hudson, FL
I am never going to buy sweet and sour sauce in the supermarket again! I didn't change a thing and we loved it. Many thanks for this recipe!
I am not going to put a rating on this one because I took your recipe and created my own! I used about 1/4 cup red wine vinegar, and brown sugar instead of white. I would recommend mixing the water and cornstarch before heating to prevent lumps (mine had lumps!) This is a good basic recipe and reheats well in the microwave.
