Homemade Sweet and Sour Sauce Recipe

Looking for an easy-to-prepare and delicious homemade Sweet and Sour Sauce Recipe that you can whip up in only a matter of a few minutes? If so, I got one for you today that was given to me by my sister a few years ago. We love this sauce and use it all of the time! We like to use it as a marinade and as a dipper sauce for a variety of foods we like to eat.

Homemade Sweet and Sour Sauce Recipe

3/4 cup white vinegar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
1/2 cup water
1 tbsp. ketchup
2 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tbsp. corn starch
1/4 cup sherry

In a medium sized saucepan combine together the vinegar, granulated sugar, pineapple juice, water and ketchup. Stir mixture over low-medium heat until ingredients are combined and the granulated sugar has dissolved. Stir in the soy sauce and simmer for an addition 1 minute. Add the corn starch to the sherry, stir this into the simmering mixture and slowly heat through (about 2 minutes) or until mixture has thickened. Remove from heat.

You can use the sauce right away or let cool & refrigerate until ready to use.
