Description

This is the light pink and fruity tasting sweet and sour sauce that they serve in Chinese restaurants. The maraschino cherry juice makes the difference; don't ever throw it away again! Serve warm as a dipping sauce, or over meat as a sweet and sour sauce.

Ingredients
  • ½ cup white sugar, or to taste
  • ½ cup white vinegar, or more to taste
  • ½ cup maraschino cherry juice
  • ½ cup pineapple juice
  • 1 ½ tablespoons cornstarch
  • ¼ cup cold water
Directions
  1. 1. Mix the sugar, vinegar, maraschino cherry juice, and pineapple juice in a saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar.
  2. 2. Place the cornstarch in a small bowl, and stir the water into it to make a smooth paste. Stir the cornstarch paste into the juice mixture, and bring to a simmer. Stir constantly until the mixture thickens, about 1 minute.
