“When dining at a "family-style" Chinese restaurant in San Francisco's China Town, I tasted the absolute BEST Sweet and Sour sauce. After many attempts to re-create that special taste, I finally captured it! This can be used for Sweet and Sour chicken, pork or shrimp. It is also a good dipping sauce for Wontons. It has a very festive red-orange color.”
