Entered for safekeeping. At 23 mg sodium, this Very Low Sodium sauce is suitable for congestive heart failure patients. I have been pleased with the taste of recipes in Don Gazzaniga's "The No-Salt, Lowest-Sodium Cookbook."

Top Review by awalde

I made half of this recipe and used fresh orange juice.<br/>I suppose that at this time oranges are not strong enough in flavor this sauce, for this reason I hade to add some self made candied orange zest form Greece (better quality) to give enough taste to this sauce. <br/>Nest time unless I will have very good quality oranges on hand I would reduche to half the quantity of flour and milk or I will substitute the milk completely with orange juice.<br/>Made for Culinary Quest 2014
