    Lorri Nichols's Note:

    This is authentic tasting! I originally found this recipe in a box of stuff to be discarded after my mother passed away, It caught my eye because it uses ingredients that I was familiar with. The recipe seems long, but once u begin tp prepare it u will realize it isn't very time consuming to make, and everyone will be impressed with your culinary prowess. I serve this with egg noodles, but have also used the little packages of ramen noodles (just save the seasoning packet for something else) and white rice is also good.

      Wow - what a great sweet and sour recipe!! Sweet and sour pork is my partner's favourite Chinese food and after serving this up tonight I don't think he'll be happy with anything other recipe. Made this as per the recipe and found the directions really clear and easy to understand and the resulting meal was outstanding. Thanks Lorri for a great recipe!!!
