*FAKE CAMELINE SAUCE TO ACCOMPANY MEAT OR FISH
ADAPTED FROM NOLA'S BASTARDA CAMELINA, lii-1

365 Nov 18

Ingredients

¼ c toasted almonds
1 slice of toasted bread (about ¼ c ground)
2 chicken livers
1 c sour pomegranate juice from 2-3 pomegranates tempered with vinegar
1 c beef broth
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp ground ginger
¼ tsp cardamom
¼ tsp mace
¼ tsp long pepper
1 tbsp butter

garnish:
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

Grind the almonds in a food processor. Add the bread with the chicken livers. Add the pomegranate juice and broth. Blend well and add the spices. Strain the mixture into a saucepan. Heat on the mixture and stir until it begins to thicken. Add the butter. When melted and blended into the sauce, taste for sweetness and sourness. Correct using vinegar and/or sugar if necessary.

Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon on top and serve.

*It is not known why Nola calls this a “fake” when he gives two other recipes for Cameline Sauce and does not call them “fakes.” There has been a discrepancy about the name as there are no camels in the sauce! Some believe it is misspelled and should be Caneline Sauce for the cinnamon, which is the same color as camels.
