1/2 tsp. minced shallots
1 tbsp. butter
1 c. heavy cream
Pinch of saffron
Lemon segments with peel

Use with your AuGratin recipe and kick it up by using sweet potatoes, turnips and Yukon Gold potatoes.

In preheated saute pan, heat butter and saute shallots until clear. Add saffron. Splash pan with wine or sherry and reduce liquid by half. Add cream, salt and pepper. Let all reduce.
