The label is engraved Walnut Catsup. the antiquated spelling of ketchup. We benefit from a plentiful supply of Walnuts growing in the wild in Kent and Sussex and can attest that making this yourself is most gratifying. We made our last batch from mashed green walnuts. onion. cloves. cinamon. cayenne pepper. ginger. anchovies and a few dates boilded in pickling and cider vinegar. This makes Worcester sauce taste like glue and is excellent with beef and sausages.

If you do not have the inclination to find green walnuts then may we suggest that you try Hendersons relish made in Sheffield which is to Worcester Sauce what platinum is to brass.
