      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.
