Paleo-Whole30 Compliant Worcestershire Sauce

Condiments are particularly tricky when it comes to Paleo/Whole30 eating. Many of them contain added sugar, preservatives, soy, and modified grains. There are some acceptable store bought condiments (such as some types of mustard), but the pickings are truly slim. So how does one eat clean and still add flavor to foods? The good news is that many condiments are easily homemade, like this Paleo, Whole30 compliant Worcestershire sauce.

    • Katie says:

      You should be able to find them in the ethnic section of your regular grocery store but if not, the higher end organic stores such as Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, Central Market etc should have it.

    Can I substitute fresher versions of some of the powders?

    For example, I’d prefer to use mustard from a jar and fresh onion or garlic instead of the powders.

    If I can indeed do this, what would the quantities be?

    Thanks – this recipe looks WONDERFUL!
