Simple Soy Dipping Sauce

"An easy to make all-purpose soy dipping sauce for dumplings, potstickers, egg rolls, lettuce wraps, fondue dip, and cooked meats such as chicken wings and seafood. I make it and use a funnel to put the sauce into an empty glass salad dressing jar but any other jar would do.From an old magazine clipping."

    There were only two things about this recipe that I regretted. First, I forgot to buy green onions (which I happen to love in my Asian dipping sauce) and second, there was not enough of this sauce for the 20 egg rolls I made. Really fantastic, enhanced the flavor of my egg rolls and put them over the top. BF liked it very much too. Thanks foodtvfan!

<p>My favorite thing to do is to spend time with family and friends,&nbsp;especially my two grandsons. Cooking, collecting recipe books and tried and true recipes from family and friends, and all the wonderful cooks here at, is what I enjoy too.</p> <p>My favorite sayings are: &nbsp;Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery, and Today is a gift; that is why it is called the 'present'. <img title=Smile src=/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-smile.gif border=0 alt=Smile />&nbsp; and&nbsp;&nbsp;Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live for today. <img title=Smile src=/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-smile.gif border=0 alt=Smile />&nbsp;</p> <p>My favorite poem is: <br /><span>Common Things <br /></span>The things I prize of greatest worth, <br />Are just the common things of earth; <br />the rain, the sun, the grass, the trees; <br />The flowers, the birds, the glorious breeze; <br />Clouds that pass, and stars that shine, <br />Mountains, valleys, all are mine; <br />Rivers broad, and open sea <br />Are riches none can take from me. <br />Our God is here on every hand, <br />Upon the sea, upon the land! <br />And day by day my thanks I give <br />That with these common things I live. <br />....Praying Hands</p> <p>My pet peeve is people who spit gum on the sidewalk even if there is a trash bin a few feet away!! I have stepped in 'fresh' gum a couple of times!!&nbsp;</p> <p><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src= alt=/ /></p>
