Catch up on ketchup

Latest from The History Guy:

No ketchup song – can’t stand the facial metalwork on those birds.

The real sauce, which the Americans may never catch up on, is the ole HP. I say ‘may never catch up on’ for this reason:

Why do they have to ruin everything?

Worcestershire sauce is a fermented condiment made from a base of vinegar and flavored with anchovies, molasses, tamarind, onion, garlic, and other seasonings. The flavor is savory and sweet with a distinct tang provided by the vinegar.

I like it in place of soy in such dishes as meat dumplings.

    Ketchup misuse is bad enough but the true condiment abuse in these parts comes from Ranch dressing.
    Ketchup is allright on the occasional burger and Mom’s meatloaf, but that’s about it.

    A dash of HP or A-1 is okay in soups and stews, but avoid saucing the steaks.

    I need to do further research on market development for the “Yellow Sauce” idea.

    Now my confession – I use neither HP nor ketchup but meat dumplings can do with soy or Worcestershire.
