    Wow, I was pleasantly surprised by this. Wasn't sure but it was really easy to make & really good. If you like sweet & sour anything this is a great vegetarian version. I'm not vegetarian but it was really good & will do again. Made it like recipe said. Very good. We ate it all.  -  26 Nov 2008
