homemade sweet and sour sauce

I was having a real craving for Chinese. I had meatballs in the freezer, so I decided to try on my own. And this is just like the thick, gooey restaurant sauce. Only better.

1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup white vinegar
2/3 cup water
1/4 cup ketchup
3 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp siracha
1 1/2 cup fresh pineapple, chunked
1 green bell pepper, chunked
2 tbsp corn starch

In a heavy pot, combine all ingredients except corn starch. Cook over medium about 20 minutes or until sugars have dissolved and peppers are getting soft.

Remove 1/4 cup of sauce to a glass dish. Add corn starch and whisk to combine. Add back to pot to thicken.

Serve over meat and rice.

Serves 4.
