Tips & Variations

This is an excellent quick sauce that went really well with cream cheese wontons. I think I would love the addition of pineapple, but didn't have any fresh or even canned on hand. This sauce is much better than the little packets that come with frozen egg rolls, etc. and gives them a bit of homemade flavor. Thanks, Dissie!
