If you are a fan of Heinz 57 Sauce then youâ€™re truly not alone. While it isnâ€™t the first thing I go to in the pantry I can understand its appeal so when I was asked to mimic the famous recipe I took the challenge seriously.
I hope you will give it a try and let me know what you think!
Homemade Heinz 57 Sauce Clone
1/4 cup raisin puree*
1 1/3 cup white vinegar
1 cup tomato paste
2/3 cup malt vinegar
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon yellow prepared mustard
2 teaspoons apple juice concentrate
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon turmeric
*To make the raisin puree, start by adding 1/4 cup each of raisins and water to your food processor and pureeing them until smooth. Measure 1/4 cup of the mixture into your saucepan.
2. Add the rest of the ingredients and whisk it all together until well blended, then bring to a good boil over medium high heat before reducing the heat to low and simmering for about 30 minutes or until the mixture thickens.
3. All to cool, pour into a bottle and refrigerate for a day or so before serving. I usually store it in plastic containers like those you see in seafood restaurants full of cocktail sauce and no one has ever called me on it.
