Pineapple Sweet and Sour Sauce

Makes about 2 cups

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.
