  1. In a saucepan, combine ½ cup of water, 1 tablespoon of cane sugar, ¼ cup of soy sauce, 2 tablespoons of honey, 1 large clove of garlic, finely minced, and ½ teaspoon of fresh ginger, grated, and set over medium heat. 
  2. In a glass, combine ½ cup of water with 1 tablespoon of cornstarch and mix well to dilute the cornstarch.
  3. Add the diluted cornstarch to the saucepan and let it simmer for 10 minutes, or until desired thickness.***
