Quick and easy to make. Feel free to make substitutions. You can substitute ketchup for chili sauce and cider vinegar for wine vinegar; still tastes great. I usually double the recipe.

Not overly sweet like so many - more like the homemade kind at our local asian restaurant. Chili sauce makes it great! Read More

I don't know why but it has a faint maple taste. It was easy to make but not sour enough. Read More

Made it with the ketchup and no cayenne; best sweet and sour I've ever had and none of the HFCS that it seems everything out there is using these days; all I'll use going forward. Thanks! Read More

Noted that other reviews said it didn't have enough sour so I substituted the broth for cider vinegar and I dont have regular hit sauce so used siracha. Just the right amount of sweet and sour and the heat hits you after. Read More

Substituted 1/2 red wine vinegar and rice vinegar and added 1/2 tbs more sugar. It was a tad too tart otherwise. Read More
