  • Zest and juice the oranges. Keep the zest and juice separately.
  • In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the unsalted butter. Add the grated ginger and sauté for about 2 minutes until fragrant.
  • Add the orange zest and half of the orange juice to the saucepan. Stir well to combine and let it simmer for about 5 minutes to reduce slightly.
  • Reduce the heat to low. Pour in the heavy cream and honey. Stir continuously until the mixture is well combined and slightly thickened.
  • Continue simmering the sauce for another 5-7 minutes until it reaches a creamy consistency. Season with a pinch of salt and ground black pepper to taste.
  • Carefully transfer the sauce to a blender. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  • Strain the blended sauce through a fine mesh strainer to remove any ginger fibers or zest pieces. This will give you a velvety smooth texture.
  • If the sauce is too thick, you can add a little more orange juice to achieve your desired consistency.
  • Taste the sauce and adjust the seasoning if necessary. If you prefer a stronger ginger flavor, you can add a bit more grated ginger at this stage.
