sesame crisp sauce

This is a classic, sweet sesame sauce that can be as gourmet as you  like, depending on the use of stock instead of water.
these chinese sesame crispies are the hit of the party as appetizers

wooden spoon
measuring cups and spoons

Ingredients...2 -3 servings, covers around 14 crispies

*  1/2 cup chinese veggie stock, or water if  you do not have
*  1/3 cup sugar (I use wholesome sweeteners organic, fair trade sugar, which has vegan friendly listed on their label, and I buy in bulk to save $$)
*  1 TBL rice vinegar (or regular will do)
*  2 TBL soy sauce or tamari
*  1/2 of, or to taste... thai pepper, minced or hot sauce
*  1 TBL sesame oil
*  1/2 clove fresh garlic, minced

*  2 TBLs cornstarch or potato starch
*  1/4 cup chinese veggie stock, or water if you do not have

•  combine the 2 TBL of starch with the 1/4 cup of water or stock and  mix well until there are no lumps, this is your thickening slurry

•  place all the ingredients along with the slurry into the saucepan, stir well and continue to stir while on high heat until thick and can coat the back of a spoon.  Taste, but do not burn your tongue,  for less sugar (add more water), more salt (add a little soy sauce), tangy (add a little more vinegar, etc.
Let cool to room temp.  Store in refrigerator, covered for 1 or 2 days until ready to use.
