    I followed this recipe a little. I used 3Tbsp sugar and 1 large Tbsp cornflour mixed them together in a bowl. I had no powder so when following wet ingredient recipe of two yolks and 1 cup of milk I added a good amount of American mustard. I did add more once the dry and wet ingredients were thickening until it tasted good. I didn't add the vinegar instead using a mix of boiled water from cabbage and leeks and carrots as the sauce co tongued to thicken  -  01 Oct 2016


    Good recipe for a sauce that complements everything from eggs to kielbasa, etc. The only change I made was to use apple cider vinegar (all I had) and the sauce was delish. The only bit of advice I have to share is to not make this right before the company shows up - it fills the house with a vinegar smell as it comes to a boil...I was scrambling to be rid of the odor :-)  -  20 Dec 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Great sauce Laurie! I made it as written, except I substituted white vinegar for tarragon vinegar, because that's what we had here. Awesome on ham!  -  12 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
