A 170-year-old food secret was almost lost to the trash heap.The original recipe notes for Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce have been unearthed in a dumpster near the sauce factory by former company accountant, Brian Keogh. It was unclear why he was digging through the trash.The accountant passed away in 2006, but his discovery only recently came to light after his daughter Bonnie Clifford brought the notes to Worcester City Museums.The ingredient list originally read as vinegar, molasses, sugar, salt, anchovies, tamarind extract, onions and garlic. The secret ingredients -- until now unknown to the public -- were simply listed as "spices" and "flavorings." The recovered notes reveal that the secret ingredients include soy sauce, cloves, pickles, peppers and lemon. Before the discovery, no single person in the Lea & Perrins staff knew the entirety of the recipe. Much of it was written in code using terms such as "1 lb. of bulldog," David Nash of the Worcester City Museums told the Daily Mail. Despite the find, the notes still fail to disclose how to blend the sauce, as well as how much sauce the recipe makes.
Do you like Worcestershire Sauce??
