Homemade Worcestershire Sauce

One of the best Worcestershire Sauce recipes I have found yet. If sodium content is a concern, use a product such as Morton's "Lite Salt" (50% lower sodium than salt) in place of the salt.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium heat and add horseradish, onions, pepper and garlic.
  2. Sauté until translucent, 5 to 8 minutes.
  3. Add all other ingredients, and bring to a boil.
  4. Turn heat down, and simmer 1 hour.
  5. Strain through a double thickness of cheesecloth and store in a wooden cask, if possible.
  6. This is best if allowed to mature in a cool, dark place for about a month before using.

This recipe is terrific! I've made it several times and love it. I don't usually have the anchovies, but even without them, it's a great flavor. I prefer making this to actually buying bottled and usually start using it right away.

Although I have just completed making this, and have a few weeks to go until it is ready, I cheated! It smelled SOOOO wonderful, I just had to taste it. I'm sorry I did, I don't think I can wait 4 weeks! Very good, and very simple, considering the finished product.
