Little bit of History  

Mr Pitchfork Pickles

Brown sauce

This tasty traditional brown sauce is made close to where the original most famous brown sauce was made by Frederick Gibson Garter who first made the sauce at 2 Victorian Villas at the top end of Sandon Street, New Basford, Nottingham and it was named after it was seen on the table of our elected representatives meeting place.

We know that Mr Garton did live at 47 Sandon Street in 1895. The Garton family operated a tea merchants and grocery store at 103 Mansfield Road, the original brown sauce dates  back to 1875 and then was sold for £150.00 to the Midlands Vinegar Company due to a bad debt and in 1986 Mr Garter's son told the Evening Post that acquiring the sauce recipe was the total intention of the Midland Vinegar Company.

It also acquired other recipes and Mr Garton banned the sauce from the house, and his sons nick name at school was H P.

When production moved oversees a retired police officer protested on the factory roof in Birmingham and an MP brandishing a bottle of sauce during Prime Ministers Question time unsuccessfully tried to get it banned from the Houses of Parliament .
It's now made in a different country.

Enjoy the sauce.
