Chippy Sauce

Hello all
I have just returned from a wonderful week in Edinburgh Scotland and had many tasty meals ,in pubs mostly, YUM, we did not have a bad meal, the pubs there are alittle smokey (March 26 they go smoke free ) but comfortable and friendly. We did eat a couple times at a "Chippy" and had fish and chips with "Chippy sauce" kind of a brown sauce with... I do not know but was wondering if any of you all know what is in it or a recipe for it. We also had "doner" sp? which was kinda like a gyro but with chicken,
My daughter's boyfriend loves the chippy sauce and I would like to make it for him when he visits us in the States

Cheers

    Ask and ye shall receive.

    Chippy Sauce

    First you make something called an HP Brown Sauce:

    Ingredients

    Apples - 1.8 kg (4 lb), peeled, cored and sliced
    Prunes - 450g (1 lb) stoned and sliced
    Onions - 2 large, peeled and diced
    Malt vinegar - 1.7 litres (3 pints)
    Ground ginger - 2 tsp
    Grated nutmeg - 1 tsp
    Ground allspice - 1 tsp
    Cayenne pepper - 1 tsp
    Salt - 8 tbsp
    Sugar - 900g (2 lb)
    Preparation:

    Put the fruit and onions into a large pan and cover with water.
    Cook until tender. Liquidise or sieve into a large saucepan.
    Add the malt vinegar, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, cayenne pepper, salt, and sugar. Cook on a low heat until reduced and thick.
    To make “chippie” sauce - add about a third of the total volume of white vinegar. (after cooking - add to existing stock)
    This sauce can be filled into sterilised jars or kept in fridge indefinitely.

    Or you could just buy a bottle of HP Sauce - I always keep one in the cupboard. If I can get it here in Kansas, anyone should be able to find it. I also use it on steaks.

    I'm guessing that "HP" stands for House of Parliament, since there's a picture of Big Ben and the House of Parliament on the label.

    If you can't find HP Sauce where you are, you can order it on line from Brit's in Lawrence, KS, where I get mine, along with my PG Tips and other assorted UK stuff I grew up eating on the Canadian border. They have several flavours of HP, but I think you're wanting the Brown Sauce. Go to britsusa.com.

    Learned more on Wikipedia

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HP_Sauce
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fish_and_chips

    There's a brief but good bit in the second link specifically about Edinburgh that told me all I need to know :-)

    Nice to see Buffalo/Great Lakes fish fries mentioned - I grew up eating those every friday in Niagara Falls.

    Even if you mixed HP Sauce and vinegar, you wouldn't get Edinburgh chippy sauce. The real Edinburgh chippy sauce recipe is shrouded in mystery. (Actually, it's probably not, but it's only available form a handful of suppliers).

    If you want, I can package and seal, and mail you a bottle direct from Edinburgh.

    The best way to do this without me getting spammed is, if you go to ebay.co.uk, and contact member tom2768, then I'll be happy to do this for you!

    I recently checked out a Jamie Oliver cookbook from the local library--in it he mentioned a favorite bacon "sarnie'(sandwich) in which he dipped in HP sauce! I've seen it in our British aisles here at the local Kroger grocery chain--had no idea it had so many uses!
