I did it! I made sweet and sour sauce!
I must preface this by saying that this doesn’t quite taste like what you get out of a jar or eat at a Chinese restaurant. It’s very good, but also different. It also isn’t fake-bright-red. It’s more reddish-brown. It is very, very easy to make!
Sweet and Sour Sauce
1/3 cup white sugar
2 and 1/2 tablespoons white vinegar
1/3 cup water
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 tablespoon ketchup
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1. In a small saucepan, combine cornstarch and sugar. Add all other ingredients and heat on medium-low setting, stirring constantly, until thickened.
I used up the rest of my won ton wrappers to make some more crab rangoons! I just made them in simple rolled shapes today, because that was Bogdan’s favorite anyway and they’re super easy that way.
