"Quick and easy to make. Feel free to make substitutions. You can substitute ketchup for chili sauce and cider vinegar for wine vinegar; still tastes great. I usually double the recipe."

Not overly sweet like so many - more like the homemade kind at our local asian restaurant. Chili sauce makes it great!

I don't know why, but it has a faint maple taste. It was easy to make, but not sour enough.

Not exactly what I was looking for to dip Wontons in, but it was very tasty. I made exactly as written, but I think using ketchup will make it more to my liking, as suggested.

We had an improv Chinese food night and needed a quick sauce. This was easy and unexpectedly flavorful! I'll be using it again - thank you!
