This is old recipe I have found in a cookbook “Zagreb Cookbook” by Marija Kumicic. I have changed a bit, omitted sauce velute, adding honey instead of sugar. Honey is old Croatian sweetener, so I thought it is OK if I change it. I made it today with roasted piglet, and it was magnificent. This is how it goes:
