Sweet & Sour Sauce (Gluten-Free)
In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I foundedÂ The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.View all articles by Scott Adams
This classic Asian recipe comes to us from "Lisa16" in the Gluten-Free Forum.
Into a sauce pan (and strain as you go) put:
The juice of two large oranges
1 cup of fresh pineapple juiced in a food processor
the juice from ½ lemon
5-6 spoonfuls of brown sugar (adjust to taste)
1 cup of water
1 spoonful of kosher salt (to taste)
½ cup of apple cider vinegar (to taste)
And in a food processor liquefy:
A thin slice of red onion
2 inches of fresh ginger root (cleaned)
3-4 cloves of garlic
1/3 cup of water
Drop this into the sauce pan too (without straining it). Bring the whole shebang to a boil—you will have to skim some orange foam off the top a couple of times. Boil then simmer for about 10 minutes. Strain this sauce into another sauce pan. This can take some doing because there will be quite a lot of solids in there. Your end product should be fairly clear and liquid.
Take this liquid and add:
1 spoonful of xanthan gum and pepper flakes to taste
