i actually MADE my OWN sweet and sour sauce just now.

I found a recipe where I had all the needed ingredients at the house already, so I didn't have to go out and buy more stuff. So I try out making a sweet and sour sauce for my rice dinner. First time I ever made a sauce. It was great! I could not believe how much it tasted a lot like the sweet and sour at local chinese restaurants. But, the thing was, it had a "fuller", more bodied taste. Less watery taste, really. I was SO dang proud of myself! And I didn't burn or scorch the sauce, like I feared I could do. I can't be more proud of myself tonight. :D

Making your own food from scratch is just so much more satisfactory. :)
And cheaper. ;)

What recipe did you use by the way?
You can find a lot of mine here.

Cool. I love sweet and sour sauce on Chinese food. It's the perfect condiment for rice.
Was it easy to make then?

Same question as amanda. Care to share the recipe? :)

I made one before but it's been a long time I forgot how I did it. I do know it's partly successful because it tasted sweet and sour.
