Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is the BASIC Butter Sauce recipe. Obviously, Mum did not use these measurements, and just prepared it, adjusting the amounts as necessary for the number of servings needed. Because she prepared meals for, not only her family, but several hungry hired men, she probably doubled, tripled, or quadrupled this basic recipe. For most people, the basic recipe will be sufficient.
