Sweet-and-Sour Sauce

Earlier this summer my mom visited me in Bismarck for a whole week!  She had a class that she needed to take for her teaching degree.  How wonderful it is to cook with mom in her kitchen…but in my kitchen?!  Well it’s a little tight for space, but I was very happy to have company.

We made shrimp with sweet-and-sour sauce.  Mom said she liked it alot and would have to make it from the following recipe again.

Ingrediants:

  • 1/2 C. packed brown sugar
  • 4 teaspoons conrstarch
  • 1/2 C. chicken broth
  • 1/3 C. red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 C. finely chopped green or red sweet pepper
  • 2 tablespoons corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspons grated gingerroot
  • 1 clove garlic, minced

In a small saucepan combine brown sugar and cornstarch.  Stir in chicken broth, vinegar, sweet pepper, corn syrup, soy sauce, gingerroot and garlic.  Cook and stir till thickened and bubbly.  Cook and stir for 2 minutes more.  Serve warm.  Makes about 1 1/3 cups of sauce.

    Every summer my dad harvest many tomatoes which are canned or made into salsa.  My sister-in-law Erica introduced our family to an awesome salsa recipe about 5 years ago.  Every summer she makes it when we have fresh tomatoes.  So I dug out the corn that I froze from this summer and the other ingredients to make this summer tradition.  

    However, after finishing and taking a few nibbles, my joy was short lived.  I lost a part of my tooth!  Maybe the dentist will accept  salsa for payment.
