HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN SIMPLE AND TASTY SWEET AND SOUR SAUCE

This delicious piquant sauce tastes great and is easy to make. Most importantly, it is nothing like the gloopy sticky orange stuff you get in a polystyrene cup from the takeaway! It is made from store cupboard ingredients and can be used to pour over pasta or you can add cooked leftover chicken, canned pineapple and a can of chinese vegetables and serve with rice for a filling and frugal meal for 4.
Ingredients:
2 tbsps oil
1 onion chopped finely
Small (230g) can of tomatoes (chopped before adding)
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tbsp tomato puree
2 tbsps marmalade
2 tbsps ordinary brown vinegar
Method:
Gently fry the onion in the oil until soft and pale golden coloured. Add the tomatoes, vinegar, soy sauce, marmalade and tomato puree. Simmer gently for 5 minutes, add a couple of twists of black pepper - and it's done!
