I love this sweet and sour sauce. It is very "pineappley" and it goes really well over chicken, shrimp and pork.

Super easy to make and keeps really well.

I always have a container of it in the freezer for a quick go to when time gets away from me.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Drain and reserve pineapple juice. Add water to make 2 cups of liquid.
2
In the top of a double boiler, melt the butter. Add brown sugar, cornstarch and salt. Stir in juice, add vinegar and soy sauce.
3
Then combine pineapple, onion, carrots, peppers and chestnuts into the above mixture. Stir frequently to prevent scorching.

Cook until peppers and carrots are soft - approximately 15 minutes.

This sauce keeps well in the refrigerator, and it may be reheated easily in the microwave or on the stovetop.

I have frozen it and it will require some vigorous stirring to get it back together but it still tastes great!

I use this sauce over chicken, shrimp and pork .. served with rice or noodles it makes a delicious meal!
