Melted Butter (the French Sauce Blanche)


  • 1/4 pound of fresh butter
  • 1 tablespoonful of flour
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 gill of water
  • 1/2 spoonful of white vinegar
  • a very little grated nutmeg


Mix the flour and water to a smooth batter, carefully rubbing down with the back of a spoon any lumps that may appear. Put it in a saucepan with all the other ingredients, and let it thicken on the fire, but do not allow it to boil, lest it should taste of the flour.

Time: 1 minute to simmer.
