Ingredients

1 tablespoon ground bay leaves

2 1/2 teaspoons celery salt

1 1/2 teaspoons dry mustard

1 1/4 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper

1 teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper

1/4 teaspoon ground allspice

1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

3 large egg yolks, lightly beaten

1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, melted until foamy

1 teaspoon kosher salt

Directions

  1. Stir together the bay leaves, celery salt, mustard, 1 teaspoon black pepper, paprika, cloves, nutmeg, white pepper, allspice, cardamom, ginger and red pepper flakes in a bowl.
  2. Combine the lemon juice and egg yolks in a medium stainless-steel bowl and set over a pot of simmering water. Whisk the yolks until pale yellow and fluffy. Slowly add the melted butter, a few tablespoons at a time, and whisk until thickened. Season the sauce with 2 teaspoons of the spice mixture and the salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Keep warm until ready to use. Keep the remaining spice mixture in an airtight container and keep in a cool, dark place.
