Pineapple Sweet and Sour Sauce

Makes about 2 cups

  • 1/2 medium pineapple, peeled, cored, and minced
  • 1/2 medium onion, minced (about 1/3 cup)
  • 1 medium carrot, grated (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 1/2 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 red birdseye chile, minced
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch dissolved in 4 tablespoons water

Combine all the ingredients except the cornstarch mixture in a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and simmer until the pineapple has softened, about 5 minutes. Slowly stir in the cornstarch mixture. Simmer, stirring, until the sauce coats the back of a metal spoon, about 5 minutes. Cool to room temperature before serving. The sauce can be made a day ahead, refrigerated, and brought to room temperature before serving.
