Sweet and Sour Sauce

I was making stir fry the other night and noticed that I didn't have any sweet and sour sauce.... Instead of dropping everything and running to the store... I decided to make it... It is surprisingly easy and you probably have everything already.

What you will need:

1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon cornstarch

Optional 1/4 cup pineapple juice

In a sauce pan add everything but the water and cornstarch.... Mix the cornstarch with the water, when the items in the saucepan start to bubble, pour in the cornstarch/water mixture and turn off the heat while stirring. Add salt and pepper to taste! Too easy! If you use the pineapple juice, you can cut the sugar by half!
