Food storage doesn’t have to be bland or boring! Simple sauces can bring life to simple sides when served over rice, noodles, or even pasta. Add steak, chicken, beef, pork, shrimp or your favorite protein, and in a matter of minutes you have a fantastic main dish meal that your family will love.

This homemade sweet and sour sauce can be prepared very quickly and easily doubled or tripled for larger groups. It is also lacking that weird orange-pink color that you get with the stuff in the jar. It’s not too tangy, and not too sweet. Try it as a marinade or sauce on your favorite barbeque item!

  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup white vinegar
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

Place the sugar, vinegar, water, soy sauce, ketchup and cornstarch in a medium saucepan, and bring to a boil. Stir continuously until the mixture has thickened.
