British Cumberland Sauce

This sweet and tangy sauce is made throughout the British Isles and can be found in pubs, homes, and restaurants. Traditionally, Cumberland sauce often accompanies game pates and cold meats and has been known to replace mint sauce next to roast lamb.

Cumberland Sauce

A distant cousin of the American cranberry sauce, this fruity-sweet-tangy sauce is wonderful with roast turkey and chicken. It can be stored, covered, in the refrigerator for a few weeks.
