Orange Raisin Sauce

  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 2/3 cup Raisins
  • 2/3 cup Orange Juice
  • 1/4 cup Butter or Margarine
  • 1/4 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon peprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cup Milk

* Serves 4 Birds

Combine raisins, 1/2 tsp salt, and orange juice in small saucepan. Heat to boiling, reduce heat and allow it to simmer for 5 minutes and set aside.

Melt 1/4 cup of butter in a small saucepan. Blend in flour, 1 tsp of salt, the peprika and the pepper; cook over low heat and stir until the mixture is smooth and bubbly. Remove from heat and stir in milk. Heat until boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir for 1 minute. Gradually stir in raisin - orange juice mixture.

We usually place the birds over a wild rice and pour sauce over birds. Any leftover sauce can be served on the side.
