Typically of my recipes, I am afraid my amounts are sketchy, but this was what my mother used for Brown Sauce (HP style)when we had postings where UK stuff was unobtainable:

tomatos, (my guess is about a dozen), abput a cup of brown sugar, finley chopped onion, glug of vingar (malt), allspice, salt and pepper, dash of worcester sauce, squeeze of lemon, and a dash of hot chilli sauce/a bit of finely chopped fresh chili. It would simmer on the hob for an afternoon before being strained and put in a couple of jars. I think the worcestershire sauce is vital, but is usually easier to get hold of.

So that's HP sauce! I've seen it at World Market, but never knew what it was. Sounds tasty!

It is. I can't really validate that its a really close version to the HP bottled version, but its a sort of deeper, fruitier but still not too intense alternative to ketchup. Best served with crispy bacon, hot cheap white sliced bread heavily buttered or lightly fried for that Greasy Spoon favourite the Bacon Butty. These are really standard fare, but they are almost traditionally on the horse show scene over here, you see these green with nerves, or red faced excited kids lining up for there bacon butties in the lorry park! How I did not spend every Sunday of my childhood being ill with that greasy food on a nervous tummy I'll never know!

No, it's an English sauce, sorta like their version of a BBQ style condiment sauce (like A-1) that's vinegar based.

HP is the makers name, like Kraft, the brand. There are other Brown Sauces, but, then there is HP!
