ASPARAGUS SAUCE.

Ingredients:1 bunch of green asparagus
salt
1 oz. of fresh butter
1 small bunch of parsley
3 or 4 green onions
1 large lump of sugar
4 tablespoonfuls of sauce tournee.
Method:Break the asparagus in the tender part, wash well, and put them into boiling salt and water to render them green. When they are tender, take them out, and put them into cold water; drain them on a cloth till all moisture is absorbed from them. Put the butter in a stewpan, with the parsley and onions; lay in the asparagus, and fry the whole over a sharp fire for 5 minutes. Add salt, the sugar and sauce tournee, and simmer for another 5 minutes. Rub all through a tammy, and if not a very good colour, use a little spinach green. This sauce should be rather sweet.
Time: Altogether 40 minutes.
