The Yucca whipplei are producing, producing, producing right now! The above photo shows the unopened flowers on the right, opened flowers in the middle, and mature fruits on the left. I had my first taste of the fruits yesterday. I put some of them directly on the grill, and some were broiled in the oven for about 20 minutes. Scrape out the inside seeds and cover with a little bit of Chef Bob’s Everything Sauce. This sauce below is delicious, and very versatile…like a hollandaise.
Chef Bob’s Everything Sauce
1 c chicken stock
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 t dried California sagebrush, chopped finely
pinch of hot pepper seasoning
5 T cold butter, diced
Combine stock, lemon juice, California sagebrush and hot pepper seasoning in sauce pot. Boil until reduced to 1/2 of original amount. Remove from heat and slowly stir in butter until melted. Sauce should be velvety, then add salt.
