Magical Fruit/Butter Sauce

by Fred Sipe » Sat Jul 13, 2013 8:40 pm

Very simple fruit sauce. I think I picked it up from Steamy Kitchen a long time ago. Really tasty and couldn't be any easier. I'm about to sear some scallops. Using apricot.

Magical Fruit/Butter Sauce

In a microwave safe bowl, melt 1/3 cup butter. Add 2 tablespoons fruit preserves (apricot, mango-jalapeno, blackberry, etc.), 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar, a good turn of the pepper mill and a generous pinch of salt.

Pour this over whatever your little heart desires.

Las night I had nectarine and strawberry parfaits with vanilla bean ice cream. Our guests loved a taste they could not figure out. I macerated the fruit in dark brown sugar with a drizzle of balsamic. The fruit had that interesting punch of sweetness, and the resulting liquid moved down to the bottom of the parfait vessel for a delightful surprise with the last few bites. Finally, my neighbor said, "there is brown sugar in here, but what is the rest?" It was really good!

Sounds heavenly! I love that little bit of piquancy from the balsamic. It is hard to pin down.
