Definition: Agrodolce

Agrodolce (pronounced "agro-dolchay") is an Italian term for any sweet and sour sauce made with vinegar and sugar. A traditional version of this ages-old sauce would be similar to a French gastrique, containing nothing more than vinegar, wine, and sugar — although butter, dried fruit, and nuts may be added. The sauce lends a mouthwatering pucker to everything from sautéed vegetables like onions to proteins such as pork chops, meaty fish, and ground beef.
