Orange Sauce for Duck Recipe


2 c Orange juice - fresh
4 tb Green onions - minced
3 tb White wine vinegar
2 1/2 tb Brown sugar - firmly packed
4 tb Butter
10 tb Butter - unsalted, chilled,
Cut into 5 pieces
2 Orange peel - 2x3/4-inch
Wide strips-julienne
Black pepper - freshly
Nutmeg - freshly ground

Simmer first five ingredients in heavy saucepan over medium heat,
stirring until sugar dissolves. Increase heat and boil until sauce is
reduced to 1/2 cup, about 25 minutes. Remove sauce from heat and
whisk in four pieces chilled butter. Set pan over low heat and whisk
in six remaining butter pieces one piece at a time.

NOTE: Remove pan from heat if drops of melted butter appear. (if sauce
breaks, remove and whisk in two tablespoons of chilled butter). Mix in
orange peel. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Spoon over carved
roast duck.

Serves 4.
