    Default Sweet and Sour Sauce

    Does anyone know which shop sells a nice sweet and sour sauce? Something like the type that McD's give out with their grub. I used to be able to get one ... I think it was HP that did it. There are plenty of stir fry s&s sauces, and Amoy do a dipping sauce but its just not the same as being able to pour it from a bottle, like tomato ketchup, and dip your chips in it.

    We use the Homepride Cook-in-sauce, though how that would work as a dip I am not sure...

    It's got to be pourable, like Ketchup :-)

    Unfortunately it's a bad case of something I picked up at McDonalds.

    Recipe for an excellent S&S sauce (courtesy of Ken Hom):-

    2 tablespoons ginger marmalade
    2 tablespoons orange marmalade
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 tablespoon cider vinegar
    1 tablespoon hot water

    Combine all the ingredients together ensuring they are mixed thoroughly.
    Transfer to a jar or bottle with a tight fitting cap and store in the refrigerator until needed.

    Please do.
    I've got another Ken Hom simple S&S sauce recipe which is terrific but it's intended more for stir-frying.

    Errrrrrr...

    Ummmm...

    This may be true.

    (Do you have to dunk the YP in the tea?)

    I checked in Somerfields yesterday: Sorry, Liane, no bottled S&S sauce in there.

    You don't have to... but the traditional (Yorkshire) way to serve the plate-sized puds is as a starter (with gravy and veg) or as a dessert (with jam or ice cream). Of course Yorkshire folk will still eat them as an accompaniment to their roast which (although I adore Yorkshire pud) is, by far, more preferable to me

    The lure of discounted plastic boxes in Morrisons may also result in a sweet and sour find today/tomorrow.

    I like to fill those big YPs with oven-roasted vegs, then top it off with savoury mince.

    Never tried them as a sweet option... Do you think they'd be good with S&S sauce?

    Well I always prefer them on their own with gravy, but we sometimes had them cold with Jam on. As for the sugar & malt vinegar that's for pancakes (which is more or less the same batter as Yorkshire Puds anyway).
