I have been tardy in posting this recipe on my blog..... a neighbor reminded me last night when she brought her empty bottle over.

Another friend found the recipe online after we ate at Spoonriver this past summer. We had tons of great foods that day but the only thing we really remember is the bois boudron sauce.

So here you go - but even if I give you the recipe, know that you still may be receiving a bottle next year at Christmas.

Bois Boudran sauce:


150ml groundnut oil

50ml wine vinegar

85g ketchup

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

5 drops of tabasco

100g shallots, chopped

5g chervil, finely sniped

5g chives, finely snipped

20g tarragon, finely snipped

Salt and freshly ground pepper

Combine the oil, vinegar, salt and pepper in a bowl. Stir with a small whisk then add the ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, tabasco, chopped shallots and all the snipped herbs. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper and keep at room temperature.

Recipe here.

Here is a picture of the sauce at Spoonriver. Mmmmmm....... Enjoy.
