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!

Very close! Add some crushed red pepper for that extra kick that McDonalds has.

This recipe is as close to McDonalds as it could be. If you follow the directions and use generic ingredients (no Smuckers here) you will be very happy.

Pineapple juice gives it the acid, less peach preserves, sub splash of pineapple juice.

My kids love McD's S&S sauce, so, I tried this recipe, and it was okay, but not quite good enough. I made it a second time, using just the apricot preserves (1/2 cup total, NO peach at all), 2 tsp more vinegar, a bit more garlic powder, and 1/4 tsp of Chinese five spice powder. NOW its good. :)
Wow! I was looking for a good sauce recipe, and this one seemed to have all the right ingredients, so I gave it a shot. Absolutely the best ever! I hadn't ever tried McD's so I grabbed a blister pack and compared them - the clone is much better (it doesn't have that creepy "processed" taste). Thanks, Todd.
Love it!! We live in Japan and they do not offer this sauce at McD's. Absolutely the best alternative I've tasted!!
