I would assume there’s very few of us who don’t enjoy the taste of a cheeky sauce dolloped on a meal. But often the sauces you purchase from the store are packed with sugar and preservatives. I am not suggesting there aren’t some healthier options out there, but the general progression by many into being more health conscious has called for better home devices to make things from scratch.
Betty Bossi has come up with a solution that doesn’t require chef’s skills or hours of YouTube watching to achieve a good result. They have created the Sauce Maker, a super fast and easy device that makes fresh sauce in 1 minute. It can be used for both butter- and oil-based sauces, such as hollandaise, mayonnaise and tartare. There’s no need for power points because this small device just requires a few turns of the crank handle to produce a restaurant quality sauce.
So, assuming you’ve purchased your Sauce Maker from your local kitchenware store, how does it actually work? I thought I’d demonstrate with a typical old-favourite mayonnaise recipe.
PREPARATION: Approx. 15 minutes
1 fresh egg yolk
1 tsp mustard
1 tsp lemon juice
¼ tsp salt
100ml sunflower oil (Do not use cold-pressed oil)
Pepper to taste
- Adjust setting to oil on the orange oil container (A=Oil/B=Butter).
- Add egg yolk, mustard, lemon juice and salt into beaker of the Sauce Maker. Place mixer on top.
- Pour oil into the oil container and place the grey cover on top (do not press it down).
- Turn the crank handle with one hand until mixture is just mixed then press the grey cover slightly downwards with the other hand, as the oil flows into the mixing container. Keep turning until all the oil has run into the mixing container.
- Season mayonnaise and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Note: All ingredients must be at room temperature otherwise the mayonnaise will congeal.
As you can see, the Sauce Maker is as effortless as purchasing sauce from the store, minus the unmentionable ingredients. In a time when the internet is overflowing with home cooks and inspirational recipes, it’s certainly exciting to conjure up some delicious sauces at home.
