Base cuisine: chocolate sauce

My best chocolate sauce recipe is simple: equal parts sugar, water, and cocoa powder (not hot chocolate mix). Stir together the cocoa and sugar, then gradually add the water and stir it in well. Cook until the sugar melts. Then store it in a closed jar.

The simplest, cheapest chocolate sauce is this: sprinkle cocoa powder on your ice cream. As the ice cream melts, it forms chocolate sauce.

Illustration: no chocolate sauce yet, but chocolate mint ice-cream in a Chinese bowl with a rice-grain glaze.

Next: tomato and bean salad

Previous: stew
