"This is the only sweet and sour dipping sauce you will ever need! Perfect for spring rolls, tastes just like the one from the local chinese (and no pineapple juice!). After a few comments, I am modifying this recipe - please note that Aussie measurements have been used- 1T=20mls. If you use these measurements it shouldn't be too salty; if you find it is please let me know!"

"This sauce was simple to make with ingredients which I had on hand. It was nothing at all like the red sauce in Chinese restaurants, however. It was pretty good, but I won't be making it again."
"Well, it doesn't get any easier than this. Homemade sweet and sour sauce with ingredients that are always readily available. This has the right balance of sweet and sour and was good on egg rolls, fried wontons and the chicken skewers. I used Splenda to make it more diabetic friendly. Made for November 2012 Aus/NZ Swap."
"This was very nice. So quick and easy. Will make again soon. Thanks for posting."
"I was looking for a sweet and sour sauce that I could make on short notice with ingredients I had on hand, and this worked out perfectly. I left out the salt because soy sauce is already salty enough. Great flavor and very easy to make."
"Yum! Sometimes I find bought / Chinese restaurant sweet and sauce sauce a little too sugary and sweet but thought this was spot on."
"Great stuff! Thanks for sharing."
"This is now my go-to Sweet and Sour Dipping Sauce. Made as directed, although I can see using chili sauce for the tomato sauce as I usually have that on hand over ketchup. Thanks, Chickee! Made for Aussie New Zealand Recipe Swap."
"This will be our home staple sweet and sour sauce. We had this when I cooked Mersaydees Chicken Wings recipe#351013. Just great!"
"I recently ran out of sweet and sour dipping sauce a few days ago and had springrolls as is. I happen to pass this by, mixed the ingredients making sure to remove the lumps, zipped it in the microwave for 1 1/2 minute, quickly stirred it and there it was, a thick sauce, not salty, just right, not too sour nor too sweet. In fact, a bit milder than the bottled sauce. Went well with the springrolls that we're having again today. Should have found this sooner! Thanks, Chickee. :) Made for Aus Recipe Swap #29."
"sorry, I did not care for this. It was not at all like the restaurant sweet ans sour sauce. Not sweet enough and too salty."
"Oh Chickee, if you only knew the story how I got to pick this recipe. Short version I needed something in a hurry for New Years 2007/2008. Ten teenagers, no pineapple in the cupboard and needed a really quick sweet and sour in a hurry...REAL HURRY!!! So lucky all ingredients were in my pantry! It went down so well...DH knew the story and asked where the pineapple came from!!! Chickee this is my new favourite dipping recipe, it was made in about 5 minutes and so very very good!!! My new lifesver is CHICKEE!!!"
"Very good. Made some Surinam chickenpastries and this sauce matched perfectly. Must admit that I added about 5 drops of tabasco to get more heat. Easy to make, tasty, will certainly make again. Thanks for posting."
"This was really easy to make with items I already had in my pantry. Although it was not as sweet as I had anticipated, it was very flavorful with potstickers."
