Directions for: Almond Sauce


2 Tbsp cornstarch

3 Tbsp water

1 onion, finely chopped

2 Tbsp butter

3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

1 tsp sugar

4 cup homemade or purchased chicken broth

½ cup 15% cream

¾ cup sliced almonds, toasted

salt and pepper


1. In a bowl, combine the cornstarch and water. Set aside.

2. Melt the butter in a saucepan and sauté the onion until golden. Add the vinegar and sugar and cook until the vinegar has evaporated. Add the broth. Bring to a boil and reduce by half. Add the cream and the cornstarch mixture. Return to a boil while whisking. Add the almonds and adjust the seasoning.

3. Note: If desired, purée the sauce in the blender, then strain through a fine-meshed sieve. The resulting sauce will be smooth and creamy. If you use purchased chicken broth, season only after reducing the sauce because the broth is already salty.
