Top Review by Donna Matthews

I added some bell peppers because I had an abundance from my garden and I usually love them in a sweet and sour dish. But it was the sauce that I really did not care for very much. It had a small bite from the cayenne, but seemed otherwise awfully bland - with no sweet or sour that I could detect.
