Serve alone with an Oriental fondue, or halve the recipe and serve with other dipping sauces.

INGREDIENTS | YIELDS 1⅓ cups

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 6 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 4 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground coriander
  • 3 teaspoons soy sauce
  1. Dissolve the cornstarch in the water and set aside. Combine the pineapple juice, cider vinegar, soy sauce, and Worcestershire sauce and set aside.

  2. In a small saucepan, melt the brown sugar over low heat, stirring continuously. Add the pineapple juice mixture. Turn up the heat and bring to a boil.

  3. Give the cornstarch and water mixture a quick stir and add to the sauce, stirring to thicken. Stir in the ground ginger and the coriander. Remove from the heat. Serve immediately, or prepare several hours ahead of time to give the flavors a chance to blend.
