How to Make Authentic Worcestershire Sauce - Make Real Worcestershire Sauce at Home!!!
Recipe type: Sauces
Worcestershire sauce was popularised by Lea and Perrins, and has since become a household name. Many other manufacturers have launched their own imitations of this legendary sauce, however only reading the label will tell you how true they are to the original. If you're looking for the real deal, the key ingredients are anchovies and tamarind paste. This is how to make your own.
- 250ml Apple cider vinegar
- 2 Cloves garlic
- 60g Chopped pickling onion
- 15g Anchovy fillets
- 30ml Honey
- 30g Demerara sugar or molasses
- 30g Tamarind paste
- 5ml Chilli powder
- 2.5ml Ground cloves
- Add the apple cider vinegar, chopped onion and garlic, anchovy fillets, Demerara sugar or molasses, tamarind paste, chilli powder, ground cloves and honey to a small saucepan.
- Use your stick blender to machine this all until fine.
- Heat the sauce over medium heat until boiling, reduce the heat and simmer the liquid for 5 minutes stirring regularly.
- Remove the pan from the heat and pour the liquid into a filter placed over a jug.
- Allow this to stand and drain. Give the paste a good stir every so often to encourage the retained liquid to drip through.
- After an hour or so the paste will be quite thick, and will have cooled entirely.
- Add 3 heaped teaspoons of the paste back into the liquid and stir it well to combine. This is your Worcestershire sauce.
- Pour the sauce into a sterilized bottle and store it in a cool shady spot.
- Save the remaining paste to add to soups, stews or to use as a steak rub.
- And there it is.... a wonderful batch of authentic Worcestershire sauce just waiting to be savored.
