    ~SwoR~'s Note:

    I love the pinkish red sweet and sour sauce that is served in Chinese restaurants...I have tried dozens of recipes and been disappointed so I made this one by trial and error...this is the closest I have come to getting that flavor.

      This was good - but I modified second batch by using 1/4 c. white sugar and 2/4 c. brown sugar. Also tried it with chili sauce instead of catsup and my hubby liked it better.

      This sauce was really good. I made it today and served it with chicken nuggets. It was even better than the one you usually get in chinese restaurants. Next time I may try it with chili sauce, but it really is great just as it is. I will definitly make this again! Thanks!
