      Nice one Bill! I used the basic recipe then stirred through a few teaspoons of cornflour blended with water to thicken and added bell peppers, sauted onion and pineapple to make a great sweet and sour chicken.

      I was in a pinch and needed a quick home made S&S sauce and this really fit the "Bill". Quick, easy and perfectly apportioned ingredients. I added a few shakes of red pepper flakes b/c we really like a sauce with a kick. An added bonus is this freezes extremely well.

      I needed a quick recipe for some frozen appetizers and cut this recipe in half (ketchup, honey, apple cider vinegar, orange juice), added a little cornstarch and cooked in the microwave on high for one minute. Good sauce with pantry ingredients--How can I complain? Next time, I will probably add a little ginger and garlic, and maybe cut back on the vinegar a little--the taste was good, but the smell of the vinegar was a little much. Thanks!
