Mum's Vegan Sweet & Sour Sauce

A delicious recipe my Mother taught me how to make many years ago!

Ingredients Sauce
1/4 cup Brown sugar 
1/2 cup White wine vinegar 
1/2 cup Tomato sauce/Ketchup
1/2 cup pineapple juice (from can pineapple in natural juice)
1/2 Tbsp Tomato paste
1/4 tsp salt to taste
2 Tbsp corn flour/starch dissolved in a small amount of water till runny set aside 

In a bowl add all the ingredients except corn flour, Stir till the sugar dissolves and is well combined.
at this point, taste for yourself and see if its to your liking and adjust to suit accordingly, Add the corn flour water now and mix well......Its now ready to pour over vegetables that have been stir frying till slightly tender.
I chose to use red and green peppers/capsicum cut into chunks, Carrot sliced, Snow peas, Onion wedges, After they cooked slightly for 10mins I added the sauce and stirred continuously till the sauce thickened slightly, and 2mins before serving a few pineapple pieces thrown in. Goes great with Jasmin rice.    Enjoy!   =)
