Title: Drawn butter sauce
Categories: Canadian, Historical, Sauces
Yield: 1 Servings
4 tb Butter
2 tb Flour
1 c Water
1/2 ts Salt
1 ts Lemon juice
Melt 2 tablespoons butter, add flour and stir until frothy. Remove
from heat and add water gradually, stirring constantly with a wire
whisk. If a wire whisk is not used, heat water before adding in order
to keep sauce smooth. Cook sauce over boiling water, stirring
constantly, until it thickens. Add salt and lemon juice and mix
thoroughly. Divide remaining butter into small pieces and drop into
hot sauce just before serving. Serve hot with vegetables or fish.
Curious name, but this sauce is as old as the hills!!
