Sweet-sour Sauce

Here's a sweet-sour sauce. Looks like a take-out version. If you want it more nuclear red, you could just add food color. I haven't used this particular recipe, but the recipes in Food for Fifty are generally reliable.

10 oz Sugar, granulated
1/4 C cornstarch
1 C vinegar, cider
2 1/2 C water
1/4 C soy sauce
3/4 C catsup

1. Combine sugar and cornstarch in kettle.

2. Add vinegar, water, and soy sauce to dry ingredients and stir until smooth.

3. Stir catsup into mixture in kettle. Cook until translucent, stirring constantly. Serve as a condiment with egg rolls or chicken nuggets.

Yield: 1 1/4 quarts
