Homemade Organic Chive Butter Sauce

This is Aaron McCargo Jr.’s Chive Butter Sauce that I’ve adapted slightly.  You can find the original recipe at Food Network.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • 2 cups organic white wine (recommended: Frey Vineyards)
  • 2 sprigs fresh organic thyme
  • 1 organic shallot, sliced
  • 2 cloves organic garlic, smashed
  • 2 Tbsp.organic grass-fed heavy cream
  • 1/2 organic lemon, juiced
  • 2 Tbsp. cold organic pasture butter
  • 3 Tbsp. chopped organic chives
  • Freshly cracked organic peppercorn blend

Here’s How I do it:

  1.  In saucepan over medium heat, add wine, sprigs of thyme, shallot and garlic.
  2. Set on back burner, over medium-low heat, to allow the wine to reduce.
  3. Once the sauce is reduced to a syrup, strain.
  4. Add the heavy cream and lemon juice and bring to a slight simmer.
  5. Whisk in cold butter.
  6. Once melted, add the fresh chives and season with black pepper.
  7. Enjoy!
