$8 FRIDAY, JANUARY 22 - MONDAY, JANUARY 25, 2010 Cape Gazette Sauce Continued from page 57 the canning process. A splash of vinegar (or Worcestershire sauce) adds a background tang without taking over. Another trick is to throw in the find of a Parmesan cheese wedge (re- move it before serving) for a hint of cheese flavor. Be sure to freeze any leftover sauce in zip top bags to have handy as an ingredient for a fu- ture recipe (soup base or pot roast). You can thaw it out quickly in the microwave or warm water. Alternatively, place the frozen block of sauce in a pan with a quarter cup of water, cover the pan and simmer until the block melts. Take off the cover, turn up the heat and cook until it's reduced to the consis- tency you prefer and ready for any additional ingredients. The last recipe is for a slightly decadent vodka cream sauce, streamlined with nonfat half- and-half. It's not nearly as high- calorieas its commercial cousin, but if you want the mouth feel of real cream, just use less. Now with the sauce under control, Cindy's already given me the next healthy taste challenge: cheesy chicken parmesan.
