I found this to be excellent although I couldn't help tinkering just a bit. I added a little more sugar and some orange juice. I also added some red food coloring to get a more appetizing color.

The PERFECT sweet 'n' sour sauce--just what I was looking for and I had all the ingredients in the house already. I just added a touch of ground ginger and garlic powder...

The only thing I had a little problem with was the oz. configurations. I added 2 cans of chopped apricots to the mixture (I had to scale the recipe to 10) that I chopped and used that juice along with a cup of orange juice instead of water. It was used over pork during and after cooking time. My entire family and guest enjoyed it. I was also asked for the recipe.

Good but I have never been a fan of Sweet and Sour Sauce.

This was fabulous! I did wind up halving the recipe since it's just the two of us, but it worked out great! Since it wasn't specified, I used cider vinegar. I wasn't sure what "pineapple tidbits" were - if that was crushed, the small pieces or chunks, so I used crushed, which worked out perfectly for us. I also added about 1/4 teaspoon of Sambal Olek to give a little zing to it. I used it to dip the Oven-Baked Coconut Shrimp, #176403, which were FABULOUS, by the way, in. Looking forward to making meatballs with sauteed pepper chunks and onions and using the rest of this sauce over rice one night next week. This is a KEEPER! Thank you so much! And that it's gluten free is heaven sent as well.

Dear Miss Leslie O~~~ I made bitty little meatballs and wanted somthing to dip them in. When I found your receipe, I read i through and deceided, yup this is it. I didn't know a home cook could even make sweet and sour sauce. And, boy, was this good. I followed you receipe to the letter and it turned out WONDERFUL. Thank you so much for posting this....you made my day (and, of course my husband and mine supper) I had 2 cups left over and put it in a glass, pint, jar and put it in the refrigerator. Angelcook

I thought that this was very simple to make. I was looking for something to dip egg rolls & chicken tenders in- and this fit the bill. I pureed the pineapple, which made it a bit overwhelming- next time I will not do that. Mine also got very thick- so I added some water. Thanks for sharing!
