I know this is a flavor I’ve missed for some time now. After looking at several different homemade recipes, it was no surprise to see that most called for soy sauce and even corn starch. This is a starch-free version that is very satisfying and a great addition to meat (or veggies) that you want to flavor with an American-Chinese twist!
Sweet and Sour Sauce
Prep time: 5 minutes Cook time: 5 minutes Total time: 10 minutes
Yield: About 2 cups
1 cup pineapple pureé (directions below)
1/3 cup water
1 tbsp coconut aminos
3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp fresh ginger, minced
1 tbsp local honey
Pinch sea salt
1. Make pineapple pureé by blending up chopped pieces of fresh pineapple. You may need to add a bit of water to get it to liquify correctly. Liquify about a cup of pieces and add more as needed until you have yielded a cup of pureé.
2. Mix together all ingredients and heat on the stove. Stir occasionally while heating, and then serve when it is hot!
