    Very good! It's more sour than sweet, so if you like it sweet then add more of the pineapple juice and brown sugar.  -  05 Jun 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Great dipping sauce! If you like more sweet than sour, use rice wine vinegar instead of white vinegar. I also like my sauces a little thicker, so I added a bit more cornstarch as the submitter suggested. If you want a richer color, add a couple drops of red food coloring - it works wonders. This stuff was great and my husband took one taste and all he could say was "Mmmmmmm". We ate this with egg rolls, and it was perfect.  -  17 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This was really good! I was looking for a sauce to use to make sweet sour chicken with veggies and this worked great. I sauteed some chicken until browned, added sliced carrots, onions red peppers, cooked for a few more minutes, then added the sauce and let it simmer for about 10 minutes. It thickened a little and coated everything nicely. Easy and tasty!  -  01 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
