"I doubled the sauce for this recipe. I kept all the ingredients the same as indicated, except that I used rice vinegar instead of white wine vinegar. The sauce tasted good at first, but as it sat over the asparagus it became bitter. To compensate, I added some brown sugar, but still wasn't satisfied with the results. Also, didn't care for the added tomatoes. Not sure where the bitter flavor came from, or if it was something I did, but I don't think I'd make this again."
