Orange Sauce

If you want a thicker sauce, leave the water out of the sauce and combine the water with 1⁄4 teaspoons cornstarch in a separate small bowl. Add the vinegar and soy sauce as called for in the recipe, bring to a boil, and then add in the cornstarch and water mixture, stirring to thicken. Use as a dipping sauce for all kinds of appetizers.
