Wattleseed and red wine sauce

250ml meat stock100ml red wine15g wattleseed™ Combine all the ingredients and bring to the boil. Simmer and reduce to thicken. Strain out the wattle grounds and freeze for other applications eg. as a crumb or mixed into breadcrumbs over meats or vegetables prior to stir-frying, deep frying or pan-frying. Finish the sauce with cold butter and serve immediately.

Lemon Myrtle Sprinkle butter sauce

This method is the same for native aniseed myrtle, native thyme or Alpine pepper and their applications are also identical.
