Killarney Sauce

I am trying to find a recipe for a dip called Killarney Sauce which is served with Irish Chips. If anyone has a recipe, please post it for me. It may go by another name that I'm not aware of. It is supposed to be a creamy white, slightly sweat sauce. Thanks.

Sorry, I've never heard of Killarney sauce. It intrigued me, so I did a quick google - it would seem to be a cream based dipping sauce served with chips (presumably UK/Irish chips=french fries?) in the US. But, there also appears to be a sweet sauce served with ice-cream which is famous in Killarney in Eire.

Also Googled and it seems it is a not uncommon sauce with chips at least on the pub menus I saw.

It may be a recipe that is so simple and well known that no one bothers to give it.

Had the same thing happen when we had Marie Rose sauce in prawn cocktail in Scotland some eight years ago. Got back home and could not find the recipe even on the web (there are a few recipes for it now). Later learned it was basically ketchup and salad cream (closese thing in US is mayo or Miracle Whip). Some add some cream and maybe worcestershire sauce. But it seemed that everyone just assumed one knew how to make it, maybe like seafood cocktail sauce here.

Would be interested to find out what it is. It is probably quite tasty.

I was afraid of that. It probably is one of those recipes that's so simple nobody bothers to write it down. I eat it at a local pub and have grown quite fond of it. If I find the recipe from some other source than this forum, I will be sure to post it for you guys. I appreciate your interest.

I think I've seen it in bottles here. Will look at the Irish bakery and at the Irish section of the Stop and Shop.

I think every person who lived through the 60s in the UK learned Marie Rose sauce as a kind of Chinese whisper.... I don't think I've seen it written down, either!

One of the sophisticated dining experiences in the 60s and 70s was a half avocado, with a few (UK style) prawns smothered in Marie Rose sauce. Or a prawn cocktail. Lettuce, with prawns and a sprinkling of chili powder... Ah yes, we knew how to live in those days

Thanks Ishbel. We like the stuff and make it on occasion.

BenCrow, I think Marie Rose sauce might work with fries until a recipe for Killarney sauce comes along. Just go light on the ketchup, the color usually is pink (like a rose wine) and not dark. If I am wrong on this, I'm sure Ishbel will be along to correct me.

Good luck.

a guy named bencrow landed on erin's green isle
he gazed on killarney sauce with rapturous smile
"how can I buy it?" he said to this site
"we'll tell you how", with a smile we replied

how can you buy all the stars in the skies?
how can you buy two blue irish eyes?
how can you purchase a fond mother's sighs?
how can you buy killarney sauce?

nature bestowed all her gifts with a smile
the salad cream, the worcestershire, the blarney
when you can buy all these wonderful things
then you can buy Killarney sauce

Hey BT - are you trying to tell us that Killarney sauce is nothing more than salad cream with a little bit of worcester sauce in it?!! Why, that's nothing more than cheating.... just like Marie Rose sauce!
