Talk about one easy dish that creates an amazing sweet and sour sauce! You can serve over rice for more of a dinner-like option, but I also like to offer them as an appetizer simply served with toothpicks. —Julie Schiefer, Nappanee, Indiana

This recipe was so good! Everyone loved it! It's almost identical to my mother-in-law's recipe that she's been making for decades. I only made a couple of adjustments... I added 1/4 c. soy sauce (in place of some of the water) and changed the brown sugar amount to 3/4 c. Also, I reduced the vinegar to 1/3 c. Everything else stayed the same. I'll definitely be making this again! Very good!
