2

1 1⁄2 T
butter (unsalted)
2 T
sugar (or to taste)
2 T
raisins
2 T
amaretto (liqueur)
2 T
almonds (toasted slivered almonds)
   
whipped cream (to serve)

Instructions

  1. Peel apples, core, cut into 1/2-inch dice and set aside.
  2. Melt butter in medium skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Add apples, sprinkle with sugar and saute until tender, about 6 minutes.

Notes

You can prepare bread sauce in advance and warm it just before serving.

The point just below the boiling point is known as the scalding point. Bringing the milk to the scalding point means to heat it to just below the boiling point, without actually letting it boil.
