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.
