Zane's Honey Chestnut Butter - for Game Birds and Pork

  • 1 gallon dark chicken stock, reduced to 2 cups
  • 1/2 cup of peeled chestnut purée
  • 1/4 cup of buckwheat honey
  • 2 sprigs of thyme
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 1 star anise
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
  • sea salt
  • fresh ground black pepper

In a thick-bottomed saucepan, combine honey, garlic and aromatics. Cook over medium heat 5 minutes, until honey bubbles and infuses the spices. Whisk in the chestnut purée, and add the chicken stock in small amounts, creating a smooth sauce consistency. Simmer for 5 minutes, and strain. Mount the sauce with the butter whisking it in small amounts, off the flame (you do not want the butter to separate.) Adjust with salt and pepper.
