Fat

We all need to eat a small amount of fat because it protects our organs and helps us grow. But we need to be careful about how much fat we eat and what kinds of fat, because in higher levels it’s associated with weight gain, diabetes, cancer and heart disease

Method

First of all, fill a vacuum flask with boiling water from the kettle. Put the shallot or onion, wine and vinegar in a small saucepan and boil down by three quarters. While it’s reducing, cut the butter up into chunks – some small, some a little larger. When the liquid’s reduced, empty the flask and pour the wine and vinegar mix into it (through a sieve if you don’t want the onion pieces in the finished sauce).

Drop all the butter in on top of it and screw the lid on. Shake the flask vigorously for about a minute – all the butter will melt and merge with the wine and vinegar to make a lovely buttery sauce.

Add a little salt if it needs it and keep the lid screwed on until you’re ready to serve. Give it a little shake before your pour.
