Sweet and Sour Sauce

Sweet and Sour Sauce:
3/4 c. Pineapple Juice
1/3 c. Water
1/3 c. White Distilled Vineagar
1/2 c. Sugar
1 T. Ketchup
Dash Ginger Powder
Dash Garlic Powder
Dash of Red Chili Flakes
2 T. Corn Starch and 1/4 c. Water (for thickening)

Combine everything but the corn starch and 1/4 c. water, in a small saucepan over medium high heat.  Stir together and bring to a gentle boil.  Once it is boiling, whisk the corn starch and water together in a bowl.  Then slowly add some into the saucepan.  Whisk and return to boil for about 2 minutes to see if it if your desired thickness of sauce.  Add more of the corn starch mixture to make it thicker, or add a little water to make it thinner.  (I used the amount listed above-- 2 T. corn starch and 1/4 c. water for mine.)

This sauce goes really well with my Chicken Pot Stickers and Sweet and Sour Chicken.
