Worcestershire sauce is one of the ingredients that is often called for when making homemade barbecue sauce. Now if you know me, you know I’m all about making homemade versions of store bought items. Anything from curry powder, to ranch dressing to my favourite dip I try to make as much as I can at home, and it only takes a few extra minutes of time. I would think that if you’re taking the time to make your own barbecue sauce, without the added preservatives and such, it’s pretty much being ruined when you throw in a bit of the store bought Worcestershire sauce. It’s also excruciatingly difficult to find a gluten free Worcestershire sauce (my mother and sister both suffer from gluten intolerance). So I took it into my own hands and made an easy and quick homemade worcestershire sauce that you can use in any recipe.
