POLLY'S BLACK SAUCE is made from a recipe developed in the early 19th Century in the kitchen of a convent. The nuns were well known for their gardens that provided most of the food for the convent and the local poor. They were also expert sauce makers and this recipe for Worcestershire Sauce, was one of their favorites.
