Durkee’s Famous Sauce
Durkee’s sauce is a great alternative to mayonnaise on sandwiches and burgers. It’s made similarly but has a unique flavor all its own. It’s hard to find in the stores but now you can make your own -
1/2 cup cold water
4 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup vinegar PLUS
2 tablespoons vinegar
2 tablespoons salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 whole egg
4 tablespoons French’s prepared mustard
4 tablespoons margarine, cut in tiny bits
Combine the water, cornstarch, vinegar, salt, sugar, egg, and mustard a blender container and blend on high speed for 2 minutes or until smooth (scrape down the sides of the blender as needed).
Place the sauce in the top of a double boiler, add the margarine, and cook over simmering (not boiling) water for 12-15 minutes, stirring frequently until smooth and thickened.
Return the mixture to the blender and blend for 1 minute on high speed.
Put the sauce in a covered container and chill in the refrigerator for 24 hours before using to let the flavors meld and mellow. It will keep, refrigerated, for up to 3 months.
