This recipe clones one of the sauces you get with your order of McNuggets at the world's largest hamburger outlet. Now, instead of shoving a fistful of the little green packs into your backpack, you can make up a batch of your own to use as a dip for store bought nuggets, chicken fingers, fried shrimp, and tempura. This McDonald's sweet and sour sauce recipe is a simple recipe that requires a food processor or a blender, and the sauce will keep well for some time in the fridge.

McDonald's sauce tastes processed, this is fresh and delicious. Who cares if it tastes "exactly" the same when this is better. I make an 8x batch with a full jar each of peach and apricot. Lasts well over a year without any trouble. Thanks Todd!
