There is nothing like homemade.
Today I decide to make homemade Worcester Sauce after finding lovely plums at Newcastle Markets on Sunday.
3lb white sugar
2lb brown sugar
850gms Treacle( the amount in the regular jar)
7quarts vinegar(2ltres white and 2litres brown)
2 heaped tablespoons salt
2tablespoons minced garlic
1tablespoon white pepper
2teaspoons powdered cloves
1 dessertspoon cayene pepper
1 tablespoon ground ginger
Seed the plums and add all ingredients in a large boiler ,boil together until soft and cooked about 1 hour.Take from the heat and blend all together( I use my whizzer stick) ,place back on heat and boil for another hour.As it is cooking remove scum that gathers on the top.
Have your sterilized bottles ready.
Remember to remove the scum as you go.
A funnel makes it easier to bottle,lots of soft drink bottles have screw tops and they are the perfect size and other sauce bottles of course.Ask friends to save them for you.
The end product, this time I got 20 bottles of sauce,not only yummy on your food great for added flavour for gravies, sauces and soups.
Making pickles and sauce is very relaxing and so worth the effort,once you make this you will never wat to buy it again.
