Trisha's Sweet Chili Sauce


Trisha and I were toying around with the idea of Vietnamese spring rolls. So one evening we got together and did it.  I took charge of the rolls and she the sauce.  And I have to admit that her sauce pulled it all together.  Luckily she wrote it down and let me blog it.

In a saucepan bring to a boil:
  • 1 2/3 cup of water
  • 1/3 cup of vinegar (white vinegar, apple cider vinegar, or rice vinegar are fine)
Stir in:
  • 1 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. of ginger powder
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 2 tsp. of garlic powder
  • 1/2 - 2 tsp. of red pepper flakes (or to taste)
  • 2 TBS. of ketchup
  • 2 TBS. of soy sauce
  • 3 TBS. of lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup of cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup of cold water
And whisk in with rest of the ingredients stirring frequently until thick.

Serve hot or cold.
