When Heather Ames, Farallon’s lunch chef, got married, we had a party at the restaurant. I offered to make a cake, but she preferred something simpler. With that in mind,
Combine all the ingredients in a medium, heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until it thickens slightly, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool slightly before serving.
The sauce can be made 1 week in advance. Cover and refrigerate.
