(At this point, you should still be able to pour the sauce, but if you like, continue reducing the sauce to make it even thicker.). If you like you can stir in a tablespoon full of butter and simmer for another 2 or 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and leave to cool. But that is optional.
  3. Remove from the heat and leave to cool. Serve the orange sauce chilled or at room temperature.

Once the sugar has dissolved, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the mixture has reduced to 1 1/2 cups, approximately 50 minutes. It should be the consistency of syrup.
