Sue & Tanya's Krivelshire Sauce
(as Marilyn has dubbed it)...
6 anchovy fillets
6 large fresh medjool dates pitted and finely chopped
2 tsp. finely minced shallots
1/2 tsp. finely minced garlic
1 - 1 1/2 spice mixture (see below)
3 Tbsp. white vinegar
1/2 cup dry alcoholic apple cider
1 medium bay leaf
1/2 tsp. dried ground ginger
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1/4 tsp. ground coriander seeds
1/4 tsp. ground allspice
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
In a small saucepan, mash anchovies and then mix well with dates, shallots, garlic, and spice mixture. Add liquid and mix. Add bay leaf, and bring to a bubble. Turn heat down as low as possible to keep mixture at a very gentle bubble (you may need to put something between the pot and the burner.) Cook for 20 minutes, then let cool slightly. Whiz until smooth in a blender or with a mixing wand. Refrigerate. The consistency will be fairly thick and won't resemble Worcestershire sauce, so don't worry.
The amount of spice mixture required will vary with the strength of the anchovies' flavour, the freshness of the dates, and the dryness of the cider you have available to you.
