    FLUFFSTER's Note:

    Sweet and sour dishes are so versatile! All you need are the basics and then just add what you like or have on hand.If you like this, put more of it in, if you don't like that, don't put so much in. As long as you are happy with the sauce, you can add baby sweet corn on the cob, baby sweet gherkins, bamboo shoots, water chestnuts, carrots or bell peppers (try using multi colors!). Just have fun creating!

      I'm so sorry I hadn't rated this yet. We have been making this recipe regularly for over a year now and we love it. The sauce is fantastic and is soooo much better than those store bought sweet and sour sauces a lot of people use plus it's really not complicated either. We did our own spin on the recipe because we were short on ingredients the first time we made it and left out the carrots, onions, and bell peppers. We also substituted garlic powder for garlic cloves because it was all we had on hand and used ground ginger instead of fresh. It worked out so well (and I really thought it might not lol because we were short on so many things) that we have just kept it that way and have made it that way many times since. So if you happen to be short on ingredients as well definitely try it this way and I promise you will not be disappointed. And I will for sure be trying it as it is written soon, I bet it will be even better. Thanks so much for posting!

      Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup. This is a fantastic dish and when DH comments I know that it's good. Very easy to make and oh so colorful. I was a little bit concerned about the lemon juice in the sauce, but my fears were unfounded. Will definitely make this again. Thanks Fluffster!
