Home-made sweet and sour sauce

I do not claim this recipe is anything close to healthy, BUT it does open you up to making your own take-out style chinese food at home and avoiding the greese, deep-fried, MSG-laden oh-so bad for you version of this American household weeknight institution. So, get in the kitchen, make some stir-fry, and try out this easy sweet and sour sauce recipe!

What you need:
1/2 cup finely diced pineapple
1/2 cup pineapple juice (preferred) or water
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar or rice vinegar
2 tbsp soy sauce, low sodium
1/4 cup sugar (or splenda)
1 tbsp Garlic chili sauce
2 tbsp Corn starch

What you do:
1. Combine all ingredients and stir thoroughly until well combined.
2. Pour into medium sauce pan and heat on medium until boiling.
3. Once boiling, reduce heat and simmer for 8-10 minutes, stirring frequently, until sauce thickens up.
4. Serve with your favorite home-made asian dish

Keep an eye out for my stir-fry recipes in the future!
