There is nothing finer than a dollop of brown sauce with your bacon and eggs, but most shop bought sauces are packed full of nasties that are not good for us. I have always had a liking for the HP fruity sauce, so here is my take on it. I have used the fruits listed on the label and experimented with the quantities to get a sauce that is spicy and nicely sweet. This would go well with any cooked meats like a nice steak or pork chops as well as the traditional full English.
This recipe makes two bottles.
- 400g tin of tomatoes
- 1 large onion
- 130g orange
- 130g mango
- 70g dates
- 30g coconut sugar
- 100ml apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon tamarind soaked in hot water for half an hour
- 1 teaspoon mustard powder
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Finely chop the onion and fry over a medium heat until soft but not browned.
- Add all of the other ingredients stir well and bring to the boil.
- Turn down to low and simmer in a covered pan for 1 hour.
- Keep checking to ensure the sauce doesn't burn.
- After an hour transfer to a blender or use a stick blender to purée to a smooth sauce.
- Once cool, fill into empty sauce bottles for that authentic look.
