Easy Sweet & Sour Sauce

There are many ways to make sweet and sour sauce and most of the time, I use ketchup and chilli sauce as the sauce base. Occasionally I will use tomato paste or sauce if I ran out of my favourite ketchup. I had some left over tomato juice that I used for my chicky pops and decided to whip up an extremely simple sweet & sour sauce for my left over fish. Surprisingly, it tastes better than my other recipe. Looks like I will be sticking to this for my sweet and sour sauce.
