This is the sweet and sour recipe that I've been looking for! It really is sweet and sour not just sweet with more sweet. Love it!

Absolutely WOW! We had to make a couple of substitutions so we could use what we had on hand: 1) crushed pineapple instead of tidbits, 2) rice vinegar instead of distilled white, and 3) one little packet of pepper flakes from the local pizza chain store instead of the full teaspoon. We used it as a dipping sauce with pork eggrolls and even tried it on sweet potato fries. The results: this is hands down the BEST sweet and sour sauce we've ever tasted!! This will definitely be our go-to recipe from now on. Thank you for sharing your recipe! :o)

This was very good. My nine year old said it was "spot on"! I left out the pepper flakes and just used the hot sauce.
