Magical Butter Sauce

29 Nov

I found this recipe on the Pioneer Woman’s Tasty Kitchen blog. How could I resist it with a name like that? This is an incredibly easy sauce to make with just 3 main ingredients: butter, jam, and balsamic vinegar.

The thing I really like about this recipe is how much fun it is to try different flavors. I’ve made this using apricot, mango, cherry, & blackberry jam and all of them were delicious. And it wasn’t near as sweet as I thought it would be. My favorites have been the jams with the stronger flavors such as blackberry & cherry. The apricot and mango were a bit more subtle. It was suggested to use this on everything from meat & vegetables to fish but I have to say my favorite so far has been salmon. I like to pour the sauce into little bowls for dipping… Mmm… Magical Butter Sauce…
