Red Chili Sweet & Sour Sauce

If you’re into the concept of Sweet & Sour but looking to branch out from that bright red version delivered by that local Chinese Restaurant try this one out. This is a great grilling sauce for Shrimp and Chicken once everyone warms up and locates their grill again!!! Sweet Sour Chilli Chicken on FoodistaSweet Sour Chilli Chicken

Red Chili Sweet & Sour

3/4 quart pineapple juice
1/4 quart sherry
3/4 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/16 cup sesame oil
1/8 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 pound pineapple, chopped
3/4 each jalapeno, sliced
1/2 teaspoon garlic, chopped
1/16 cup pickled ginger
2 each red chilies, dried, stems removed_ New Mexico's work best
1/2 fluid ounce cornstarch slurry, to thicken

1. Place all ingredients into a large pot, and simmer until vegetables, and fruit become tender

2. Slurry to thicken, and puree with stick mixer

3. If you do not have a stick mixer you can allow to cool, and blend in a counter top blender. Do not perform this task if it is still hot, as severe burning will result!!!
