Melted Butter Made With Milk


  • 1 teaspoonful of flour
  • 2 ounces butter
  • 1/3 pint of milk
  • a few grains of salt


Mix the butter and flour smoothly together on a plate, put it into a lined saucepan, and pour in the milk. Keep stirring it one way over a sharp fire; let it boil quickly for a minute or two, and it is ready to serve. This is a very good foundation for onion, lobster, or oyster sauce: using milk instead of water makes it look so much whiter and more delicate.

Time: Altogether, 10 minutes.
