    Wink Lemon juice in sweet and sour sauce

    Hi all,

    My kids love sweet and sour sauce, and I was wondering if I could substitute lemon juice for the pineapple juice?

    I have several lemon trees but no pineapple.

    Thanks,
    Janetsue

    Lemon is quite citric and tart while pineapple is a bit sweet. I'm sure you can but it won't taste quite the same.
    I probably wouldn't use near as much lemon as pineapple, though.

    Karen you are a genius. I was just going to post and ask all, what could be added to make the sweet and sour using the lemons that she has. That's what she wanted and YOU found the answer. We always say, you are the research Queen.
    I think I might try this one myself.

    Now that I see it, I remember having sweet and sour lemon with tempura prawns. Yummy, yummy.
