  • 1 medium onion finely chopped

  • 1-inch fresh ginger finely grated
  • 1 small lemon
  • 5 finely chopped anchovies
  • 1 tbsp of the oil from the anchovies container
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1 1/4 cup malt vinegar
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup molasses
  • 1/3 cup tamarind paste
  • 1 tbsp celery salt
  • 2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 1/2 tbsp fresh grind black pepper


  1. Add the raisins into a container and boil your water, then pour it over the raisins to soften.
  2. Chop the onion, garlic, and anchovies.
  3. Grate the ginger and the zest of the lemon.

  4. When the raisins are softened, add them to a blender with half the water, then add the chopped onions, garlic, grated ginger, and lemon zest and blend until smooth.
  5. In a medium saucepan, add the anchovies oil and the anchovies, heat it, and cook until fragrant, then add the rest of the water, vinegar, sugar, molasses, tomato paste, tamarind paste, and dry spices.
  6. Bring it to a simmer and then add the content from the blender and let it simmer for about 15 min stirring regularly.

  7. Remove from heat and let it cool somewhat then test if the salt content versus the vinegar is balanced, must not be too sour. You can adjust it to your liking.
  8. Pour through a strainer and if the content is too thick, add a little more boiling water and stir it in well.
  9. Pour into bottles and use as needed, it takes about a week to mature, and only then you will have the true taste of your homemade Worcestershire Sauce.

  10. Discard the solids in the strainer or use them in your cooking.
