Sweet and Sour Sauce

Condiment:  Sweet and Sour Sauce

Sometimes my refrigerator looks as though all we eat are condiments:  ketchup, mustard, salsas, mayo, chili sauce, and oriental sauce.  Finally I found one oriental Sweet and Sour Sauce to be enjoyed on many dishes:  vegetables, poultry, meats and seafood which is easily made in my own kitchen.  I have a sweet-loving husband who likes to eat everything with sugar” on it.  It seems this sauce satisfies the ‘sweet tooth.’
