Emeril's Worcestershire Sauce

Time consuming & with a lot of prep involved, this yields a much sweeter & less pungent & spicy version of the store bought sauce!

Emeril's Worcestershire Sauce:

2 tablespoons olive oil

6 cups coarsely chopped onions

4 jalapenos, with stems and seeds, chopped

2 tablespoons minced garlic

2 teaspoons freshly ground pepper

4 (2-ounce) cans anchovy fillets (or an 8-ounce can), drained of oil

1/2 teaspoon whole cloves

2 tablespoons salt

2 whole, medium lemons, skin and pith removed

4 cups dark corn syrup

2 cups 100 percent Pure Cane Syrup (recommended: Steen's)

2 quarts distilled white vinegar

4 cups water

3/4 pound fresh horseradish, peeled and grated

3 pint-sized canning jars

Combine the oil, onions and jalapenos in a large stockpot over a high heat. Cook, stirring, until slightly soft, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the garlic, pepper, anchovy fillets, cloves, salt, lemons, corn syrup, cane syrup, vinegar, water and horseradish and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the mixture barely coats a wooden spoon, about 6 hours. Strain into a clean container.

Worcestershire Sauce may be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 month, or processed as directed below and kept for up to 1 year.

Sterilize 3 pint-sized jars and their metal lids according to the manufacturer's instructions. Spoon the hot mixture into the jars, filling to within 1/2-inch of the rim. With a clean, damp towel, wipe the rims and fit with a hot lid. Tightly screw on the metal ring. Place, without touching, on a rack in a large, deep canning kettle or stockpot of rapidly boiling water; water should cover the cans by 1 inch. Boil and process for 15 minutes. Using tongs, remove the jars, place on a towel and let cool completely before storing. Test the seals and tighten the rings as needed. Store in a cool, dark place for at least 2 weeks before using. After opening, store jars in the refrigerator.

Yield: 3 pints

This sounds excellent! I wish I had had this recipe years ago, when my kids developed an addiction to "Warty-Sauce". But nowadays, a bottle lasts me forever, because no one in this household (but me) will touch it!
