Did You Know. . .

that the "sweet" in sweet and sour sauce is due to the sugar in the recipe and the "sour" is due to the vinegar added?

that it is said that sweet and sour sauce originated in China?

that the Chinese serve sweet and sour pork on their New Year's Eve because the Cantonese word for sour is similar for their word for grandchildren?  They feel that by eating this food they will have more grandchildren in the upcoming year.
