Sweet and Sour Sauce

Forgive my hiatus--my husband is traveling for three weeks so last week I went to visit my mom and then to visit my aunt and uncle who were on business in Vegas. So, I'm back now and here's a yummy recipe for homemade sweet and sour sauce with a really bad picture. Maybe someday I'll be famous and someone will take all of my pictures for me. Until then you're all stuck with whatever comes out of my little Nikon pocket camera.

I have been craving Asian food so I've experimented a lot with homemade take-out style food. I got some really great frozen egg-rolls at Trader Joes for a great price and they're big and good and low fat so you should definitely try them out! I adapted this recipe from a recipe I found on Allrecipes.com. It makes a lot and keeps a while in the fridge, it would be great as a dipping sauce OR as the sauce in a stir fry or with some pieces of fried chicken over rice.

Sweet and Sour Sauce

1 c. pineapple juice
2/3 c. vinegar
1 1/2 c. sugar
8 oz tomato sauce
2 T soy sauce
1/2 tsp dried ginger
3 T cornstarch

Mix all ingredients together except for the cornstarch. Bring it to a boil and reduce heat to allow the sauce to simmer. Mix the 3 T cornstarch with 3 T of the sauce and slowly pour the cornstarch mixture into the simmering sauce. Continue simmering 20 minutes, the sauce should be thickened nicely. Store in a jar or tupperware.
