“This recipe is by one of the highest rated restaurants in New York City. It is used neat and also as a component of many of their other recipes. It's an extra-ordinary recipe that uses ordinary ingredients. It's very easy, but it does take time. You may think it's a bit of work, but I think it's worth it and have used it in dozens of ways (it's great on or in most anything). A wonderful basic that you may use as you need it. Keeps in the fridge several days and it freezes well, so you'll always be able to keep some on hand.”
