I came up with this recipe for dipping homemade egg rolls in but we have also used it to dip chicken tenders. It is so easy to make and takes no time at all. Much cheaper then buying the bottled sweet and sour sauces and it tastes better. Try adding some finely diced green bell pepper to the sauce for a more "in depth" flavor. I prefer it without the bell pepper, but others like it. Serve it warm or cool. (Multiply the recipe and use in sweet and sour meatballs if desired)

Sounds good, Karen! I added this recipe to my "cookbook". I do make home made egg rolls occasionally, so next time I make them, I'll try it. Thanks for sharing!
