Henderson's Relish - Sheffield's Secret Weapon

Henderson's RelishOnce in a while you come across an ingredient that is so superb that you have to write about it. Sheffield's Secret Weapon, Henderson's Relish is one of those. How it managed to slip my attention when I spent 9 months of 1975 in Lodgemoor Hospital in Sheffield, I just don't know. It's superb, and well worth seeking out.

At first glance and taste you'll probably think that it's a copy of Lea and Perrins famous Worcestershire sauce, but you'll soon realise that it's subtlety different - not so harsh and aggressive a taste. Whereas Worcestershire sauce can dominate, Hendo's compliments.

Henderson's relish is also suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

As to its manufacture? Is it made in a factory on Parkway Rise, Sheffield, or does it drip from seams in the local coal mines as suggested by my Yorkshire mate . Now, I like to think that it comes from a secret well situated under the old Lodgemoor Hospital clock-tower and that's why the clock-tower was left standing when the hospital was demolished!

In any case, it's available from numerous shops in the Sheffield and North Derbyshire area and nationally at Morrisons Online or other online suppliers.
