A Very Good General Sauce

(Sauces.) - (The Lady's Own Cookery Book)

Take some mint, balm, basil, thyme, parsley, and sage; pick them from

the stalks, cut them very fine, slice two large onions very thin; then

put all the ingredients into a marble mortar, and beat them till they

are quite mixed; add some cayenne pepper and salt; beat all these well

together, and mix them by degrees in some good cullis, till it is of the

thickness of cream. Put them in a stewpan, boil them up; strain the

gravy from the herbs, pressing it from them very hard with the back of a

spoon; add to the gravy half a glass of wine, half a spoonful of salad

oil, the squeeze of a lemon, and a pinch of sugar. This sauce is

excellent for most dishes.
