Sweet and Sour Sauces Two Ways

These sauces can be used for dipping items such as egg rolls or put in a sweet and sour recipe.  The first recipe is sweeter and the one I have used for a long time.  Recently, I have preferred the second one as it is not so sweet and has one of my favorite ingredients, Thai Chili Sauce.

Sweet and sour Sauce

  • 1 tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 2 tbsp. ketchup
  • 2 tsp. soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup (I use less) brown sugar

Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring frequently until it thickens.  You will notice a change in the color of the sauce, it will darken some and thicken.
