This is the final sauce in the lineup of mother sauces and it too has many variations of finished possibilities. As with hollandaise, beurre blanc derivatives are prepared by varying ingredients in the reduction or by adding in garnish ingredients. This means that you can either reduce down a liquid with ingredients or add them in at the end when finishing the sauce. The quality of butter is equally very important to overall success of the sauce. I chose unsalted butter so that I can add salt at the end according to my taste.

When looking through the pantry and cupboards, I came across a few ingredients that can create the most deliciously moist sweet bread. The key was to use the carrots' natural sweetness accompanied by a little bit of pancake syrup, and then cook them down until they are nice and tender. A key point here is that many call the small carrots, baby carrots, when in fact they are normal-sized carrots simply shaved down on a vegetable lathe. Try experimenting with maple syrup or honey in place of pancake syrup, or completely eliminating the syrup all together and increase the sugar up to 2 1/2 cups, or even 3 cups if you want a really sweet bread.
