Reduction Shopping Tip

A great sauce is all about flavor. Be sure to get fresh and bold flavors to add to your sauces based on what looks good at the store.

Reduction Cooking Tip

When reducing a sauce to concentrate the flavors be sure to keep an eye out and not let it burn. For extra shine in your sauce, add a pat of butter at the end.
