I also added red pepper to mine, very easy to make. I did double the recipe.

Good balance of sweet and sour. I also add crushed red pepper like Mom of 4 does.

This is a wonderful sauce that will make any meal seem like you went all out! Pour over meatballs, chicken strips or breaded pork, or use as a dunking sauce.
I used just pineapple juice in the recipe for sweet and sour meatballs for a luau party. Perfect!

I went looking for an "Orange Chicken" type sauce and definately found it...I loved it, the perfect amount of juice/sugar for the sweet and also nicely sour. I am definately making this again. One thing I did was add a teaspoon of crushed red pepper (to a double batch) for a little "kick" at the end :)
