How to make homemade Sweet and Sour Sauce
Go ahead and add pineapple juice, ketchup, kecap manis, and rice vinegar to a pot and bring slowly to a boil. Let cook for 1 minute on medium heat.
Mix water with cornstarch in a small bowl then add mixture into the pot whole stirring with a wire whisker. Let the sauce thicken to its desired consistency, then remove from heat.
Finally let it cool down a bit, and give the sauce in an airtight container.
Use immediately or store for later. With a lid on top it will keep fresh for 1 week. This is great and so handy, I suggest you make easily double or triple batches to store in the fridge when you need even more.
This is such a great condiment for dinner, lunch, or make ahead meals, to which you want to add more flavor.
Marinate or dipping is also great, because the flavors compliment many food items. You can play around and simple enjoy at any time when you want.
