tomlinson 879 Posted January 8, 2015 Report Share Posted January 8, 2015 This subject may well have been already discussed in the annals. If so, I apologise. A letter appeared in the Telegraph today discussing H.P. brown sauce which was not as thought launched by H.P. in 1903 but by Frederick Gibson Garton, a pickle manufacturer in the 1890s who sold it in his shop in Sandon St. New Basford. On hearing that the sauce was popular in Parliament, he registered the name H.P. Sauce in 1895 but sold the recipe to settle his debts to a firm in Birmingham. Today it is made in the Netherlands and it looks as though it may disappear from our shop shelves. Quote Link to post Share on other sites
