Sweet and Sour
In this little Venn diagram, I've brainstormed a few potential sauce and marinade ingredients. While not every pair of sweet and sour ingredients is a match, it is always fun to experiment with different combinations. Ingredients that have both sweet and sour qualities are often great foundations for sauces. My personal favorite is orange juice, the star of many Asian recipes. Be creative and use your imagination. If your feeling stuck trying to come up with a good marinade, it's hard to go wrong with brown sugar and vinegar.
