Once you try this, you will never go back. Store bought Worcestershire is dead to me…strong words? Yup! Dead to me. This stuff is so unique and so great. It makes you realize how flavorless the store bought stuff is. Flavorless, you ask…how, it is the strongest stuff out there, but I promise you will see the difference. The greatest thing about this is that you control the flavor. Like cardamom? Add more. Like salt? Be a little heavy handed on the soy and anchovy. You will love this; long ingredient list, so easy to make.
