    1       lb           Small Belgian endives,
                         -trimmed and quartered
                         -lengthwise
    5       tb           Softened sweet butter
      1/4   c            Eau-de-vie de framboise
                         White pepper
                         Fresh lemon juice (opt)
 
   Select Belgian endives that are tightly closed and small.
   
   In a skillet, cook the endives in 3 tablespoons of the butter over low
   heat, turning them to coat them with the butter, for 10 minutes.  Add 2
   tablespoons of the framboise, the white pepper, and salt to taste.  Simmer
   the mixture for 1 minute.  Transfer the endives with a slotted spoon to a
   serving dish and keep them warm in a preheated 250F oven.  Add the
   remaining 2 tablespoons framboise to the skillet, simmer the pan juices,
   stirring, for 1 minutes, and remove the skillet from the heat.  Swirl in
   the remaining 2 tablespoons butter, pour the sauce over the endives, and
   sprinkle the endives with lemon juice if desired.
