I was in the mood for some egg rolls and, when trying to think of something to go with them, I opened the fridge and saw way too many oranges. Not finding an orange sweet-and-sour sauce, I made my own. This is sweet and sour with a bit of spice and a beautiful, yet light, orange taste. Perfect over egg rolls, shrimp, chicken, rice, or even stir-fried veggies.

This is so good and super easy. I love the fact that it doesn t use pineapple juice- great for anyone with allergies. I used apple cider vinegar instead of red. I also used homemade dark brown sugar which gave this a rich flavor and color. It was a nice balance between sweet and sour. I served it with some spicy meatballs and my kids ate the sauce just with a spoon. Thank you for the recipe. Read More
