1 cup brown sugar - not packed

cup vinegar

tsp. ginger

1 cup water

1 heaping tbsp. cornstarch mixed with a little water

This recipe is great for fish and lighter meats like chicken.  For more robust meats like beef or pork, add a little more sugar and ginger.  When looks are important, add a little red food colouring.

Heat together brown sugar, vinegar, ginger and water.  Bring to a boil.  Add cornstarch/water mixture and bring back to a boil stirring constantly.  Remove from heat as soon as it is thickened.
