  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 4 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 4 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon molasses NOT blackstrap, they're too bitter
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon dried garlic powder
  • 1 cup finely diced pineapple OR canned crushed pineapple optional


  1. Whisk all ingredients together in a small saucepan (off the heat!) until smooth and no more lumps of cornstarch are visible. Stir in the pineapple chunks, if using.
  2. Bring to a boil, whisking constantly. Then lower the heat to a simmer and cook, stirring, until the sauce has thickened to your liking.
  3. If the sauce is too thick, add a little more pineapple juice. If the sauce is too thin whisk a little cornstarch into cold pineapple juice, then whisk this into the sauce and simmer until thickened enough. Do NOT add dry cornstarch directly into the hot sauce!
  4. Pour into a clean jar while hot and allow to cool before closing with a tight-fitting lid and storing in the fridge.

Recipe Notes
The sauce keeps in the fridge for about 2 days with the pineapple added, about a week without.
Nutrition is an estimate and includes fresh pineapple chunks.
