Mom's 50 Year Hard Sauce

READY IN: 7mins
Recipe by Chef Dee

Mom has served this hard sauce over Christmas pudding for the past 50 years. What she may not know, is that every time we went by the stove and stirred it, we added another dash of brandy. It was the only alcohol allowed in the house.

Had a great turkey dinner with company this weekend, and I decided to make a Carrot Pudding. This sauce topped it wonderfully. Thanks for the new family recipe.
