Sharron's "Half Fat" Butter

I have been threatening to come up with a good way to get my buttery taste on my veggies without being totally "wicked". So tonight I came up with this to dip my artichoke in.

1 cup buttermilk
1 T. cornstarch
1/2 c. butter
1/2 t. salt

Mix the cold buttermilk and corn starch using a whisk. Start cooking over medium heat, stirring. When it starts to thicken, add the butter and salt. Continue stirring until well blended.

I thought it was pretty good dipping the artichoke in it and then tried it over some

steamed broccoli. It stayed on the broccoli, didn't just run to the bottom of the bowl and tasted great. I forgot to take pictures, so I will make another batch tomorrow and take the pics then.

I just spread it on some toast. It made the toast a little soft but tasted good with jam and as cinnamon toast .

Tomorrow I will try it on corn on the cob . . . YUM!

I tried it and loved it! My daughter who tends to be a little pickier also tried it and said that it was good.

I just made a batch of this Butter Sauce with only 1/4 cup of butter.  it's good but not really quite yummy.

After making it several times, I have realized that as soon as it thickens, it is best to add the butter, blend and remove from heat.
