1/2 cup water
1 T chopped green pepper (optional)
1 T chopped canned pimento (optional)
1/2 t salt
2 t. cornstarch
1 T water
1 t paprika
In a sauce pan, mix 1 cup sugar. 1/2 cup each white vinegar and water, I T chopped green pepper and chopped canned pimento, and 1/2 teaspoon salt.. (You can skip the green pepper and pimento.)
Simmer for 5 minutes,
Combine 2 teaspoons cornstarch and 1 T cold water. Add the hot mixture. Cook and stir until sauce thickens and bubbles.
Cool. (This is makes the next step work more smoothly.)
Add 1 teaspoon paprika.
Keeps well in refigerator
