Pineapple Sweet-and-Sour Sauce

A 14-ounce can of pineapple chunks will give you the right amount of juice needed for this sauce. Reserve the pineapple chunks to add directly to the stir-fry, if called for in the recipe. The brown sugar complements the sweetness of the pineapple, while the vinegar and salt give the sauce a multifaceted flavor.
