"Those herbs which perfume the air most delightfully, not passed by as the rest, but, being trodden upon and crushed, are three; that is, burnet, wild thyme and watermints. Therefore, you are to set whole alleys of them, to have the pleasure when you walk or tread."
-Francis Bacon, Lord Chancellor

This sauce hits all the right notes. It's rich and creamy with a sweet and buttery flavor and just a bit of tartness from the vinegar. You can use this sauce on almost any food that has a lot of flavor of its own such as fish, pork or roast chicken. It's fantastic on asparagus.
