This is a very decent substitute for HP Sauce or London Pub Sauce if you can't find them in stores. Makes a first-class barbecue sauce, also.
- 4 ounces orange juice (freshly squeezed if possible)
- 4 ounces raisins
- 3 ounces dried dates, roughly chopped
- 2 ounces Worcestershire sauce
- 2 ounces malt vinegar
- 2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
- 3 ounces tomato puree
- 2 tablespoons ketchup
- 2 tablespoons chili sauce
- 1 tablespoon corn syrup
- 2 teaspoons dry sherry
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground allspice
- 2 teaspoons browning sauce (such as Kitchen Bouquet)
- Whisk together all ingredients, except browning sauce, until thoroughly mixed.
- In a saucepan, bring the mixture to a boil and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring constantly.
- Remove from heat, stir in browning sauce, and cool to lukewarm.
- Purée the sauce in a food processor fitted with sharp metal blade.
- Pour into a bottle, cap tightly, and refrigerate.
- Sauce will last very well (about 3 months) in the fridge.
This recipe isn't vegan, since Worcestershire sauce has anchovies, nevertheless, looks good.
I liked this sauce, didn't taste much like HP though. You might like Wal-Mart's steak sauce, tastes almost exactly like HP to me. Also ask your local store if they will stock ex-pat foods you really miss, some will. Brookshires, Tyler, Tx (Broadway store)have a good range of Brit foods and always willing to add more.
