Not Really Worcestershire Sauce

The Worcestershire Sauce was running low.  I read the ingredients on the label.  I had them all, or a reasonable substitute, in my pantry.  I can make my own.

But no, I had to experiment and tinker, so this is not really a recipe for Worcestershire sauce.  But it is a good sauce.  I have no doubt that when it has aged a while, it will be a very good sauce.


  • 1 cup malt vinegar
  • 1 cup clear apple juice
  • 1 Tbsp molasses
  • 1 Tbsp tamarind paste
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp onion flakes
  • 2 anchovy fillets
  • 1 Tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 Tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp crushed ginger
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ½ tsp smoky paprika
  • a good pinch of cayenne
  • a pinch of ground cloves
  1. Bring it all to the boil and simmer for 15 mins.
  2. Blend with a blender wand to liquidise the onion flakes and anchovy.
  3. Return to a simmer
  4. Bottle in sterilised recycled sauce bottles.



About Uisce úr

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.
