Recipe type: Sauces
Serves: 0
Ingredients
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 6 ounces peeled fresh horseradish chopped
  • 2 medium white onions; chopped
  • 3 Tablespoons minced jalapeno pepper
  • 3 Tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • water
  • 4 Cups distilled white vinegar
  • 1 Cup molasses
  • 2 Cups dark corn syrup
  • 1 ounce chopped anchovy fillets drained
  • 12 whole cloves
  • 1 Tablespoon salt
  • 1 lemon; peeled
Instructions
  1. In a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium heat and add horseradish, onions, pepper and garlic. Saute until translucent, 5 to 8 minutes.
  2. Add all other ingredients. Bring to a boil. Turn heat down, and simmer 1 hour.
  3. Strain through a double thickness of cheesecloth and store in a wooden cask, if possible. This is best if allowed to mature about a month before using.
Notes
Worcestershire Sauce is used as a key ingredient in other sauces, such as BBQ sauce, Steak Sauce and so many others.

The flavor is said to be similar to the ancient Roman Garum, also a fish and herb based sauce that was, like this, fermented before use.

Worcestershire Sauce should be a staple in every kitchen or bar. The homemade variety is far superior to the bottled.
