Geo Watkins Traditional Brown Sauce. Treats for under £1.50Posted by Fiona Nevile in Reviews | 7 comments
I’m a big fan of Geo Watkins’ sauces. I use the anchovy sauce and the mushroom ketchup a lot. A few weeks ago I spotted there was a new (probably just to me) sauce on the supermarket shelves – Traditional Brown Sauce. So I popped it in my basket to put in Danny’s Christmas stocking. Could this be the perfect relish for his famous weekend brunches?
I’m not a brown sauce sort of girl. I grew up in a house where brown sauce didn’t make an appearance. When eventually tasted it – in a greasy spoon café with sticky plastic squeezable bottles – I didn’t like it and assumed it was a man thing.
Yesterday Danny ceremoniously shook the unopened bottle. And then read the label out to me.
“A fruity, spicy table sauce that will add zest to your bacon and eggs.” He grinned as he dolloped a large blob on his plate. Now D grew up with HP sauce on the table so he approached this new sauce with expectations. I, on the other hand tasted it with trepidation.
It was stunning, fruity yet savoury excellent with the sausages that he had grilled. Danny liked it with his eggs too and pronounced it to be much better than HP sauce.
So if you want to liven up a weekend brunch why not give it a go?
