Puritan Backroom–Style Sweet-and-Sour Sauce
Serve with our Puritan Backroom–Style Chicken Tenders.
Why This Recipe Works
Duck sauce (or plum sauce), a staple in Chinese cooking, tends to be very sweet straight from the bottle. To put our own spin on this bottled sauce, we added sour white vinegar to tame the sweetness, along with soy sauce for depth and a pinch each of ground ginger and cayenne for zing and oomph.
