Sweet-and-Sour Orange Sauce
"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."

- Combine water, brown sugar, vinegar, orange zest, soy sauce, ginger, cayenne pepper, sriracha sauce, white pepper, and cayenne pepper in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir sauce until sugar is dissolved, 3 to 5 minutes.
- Remove 1/2 cup of sauce and combine with cornstarch in a small bowl. Whisk until well blended and orange zest starts to dissolve.
- Raise heat under the saucepan and bring the sauce to a slow boil, about 5 minutes. Mix cornstarch mixture into the sauce. Stir occasionally until thickened, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool a bit, about 3 minutes.

Tasty recipe! I think next time I would follow Buckwheat Queen's suggestion and use apple cider vinegar. We definitely enjoyed!
