How to Make Sweet and Sour Sauce
- Drain and reserve pineapple juice. Add water to make 2 cups of liquid.
- In the top of a double boiler, melt the butter. Add brown sugar, cornstarch and salt. Stir in juice, add vinegar and soy sauce.
- 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!
