Traditional sweet and sour sauce

Saturday, December 27, 2008

Great with tempura fried meats and seafood. Also very good with meatballs and sausage balls.

What you’ll need:

¾ c sugar
½ c vinegar
2/3 c water
¼ c soy sauce
1 Tbl ketchup
2 Tbl cornstarch

Mix all ingredients in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture comes to a boil. Continue to cook and stir until mixture has thickened, usually 1 - 2 minutes. Makes 2 cups of sauce.

Cost:
sugar - $1.99/4 lb bag
vinegar - $1.19
soy sauce $1.89
ketchup - $1.89/big bottle
cornstarch - $1.29
Total - $1.06

This is mouth-watering! I've always thought about making my own, since we use it infrequently and never seem to have any on hand when we need it! This will help.
