back to pronunciations!

"Worchester" = 'wooster', correct?

and you are telling me "worchestershire" is also pronounced 'wooster'?    the "shire" is silent in its entirety?

Yep to that here, Mario. My grandmom said it that way--she was English. The merest hint of 'sh' on the end of 'wooster'.

"They changed the recipe at the same time they changed the label."

So... maybe... just maybe they changed it for the better....   

What exactly are 'folkies' so afraid of, that they think that all change is bad?

Just to help on this discussion I have copied and pasted this article from a Birmingham website.

Worcester Sauce

Worcestershire Sauce was brought back from India by Lord Marcus Sandys, ex-Governor of Bengal, who gave it to two local chemists, John Lea and William Perrins, with an order for a large batch to be made up from his recipe. A few weeks later he returned to pick up the sauce, only to proclaim upon sampling some that it tasted filthy and was nothing like how it should be, and left in disgust.

Nothing more was thought of this until the chemists discovered it at the back of their stores a few months later, and they decided to give it just one more try before tipping it down the drain. To their surprise, the foul-tasting anchovy broth, after being left to ferment, had matured into an interesting spicy condiment, and they immediately purchased the recipe from Lord Marcus. So thanks to this chance retasting,1838 saw the UK's best-known sauce launched, and the name of Worcestershire Sauce (originally called just Worcester Sauce), has spread to be mispronounced by many a foreigner in every corner of this spherical world.

In the UK, Worcestershire is pronounced 'woost-ur-shire' and Worcestershire Sauce is referred to as 'Worcester Sauce', pronounced 'woos-tah'. In many other parts of the world, however, it is referred to as 'War-sest-uh-shire' Sauce.

LOL

It was meant jocularly, Clinton. I love HP Sauce. Even after the change of recipe and label.

Reminded me of a commercial for some sorta barbeque sauce: They used

Bar-bar-bar-bar-bar-be-que, bar-bar-bar-bar-bar-be-que--and all I could think was, "Is nothing sacred anymore?"

Incidentally, it's Worcestershire Sauce. There's no 'h' in it. Or 'p' either for that matter.

I think it was probably a mistake to have faith in HP sauce to start off with.

An HP sauce apostate.......the chances of finding a support group are minimal.

Time to face future bravely: that means everything; the new label and the squeezy bottle.

Now might be a good time - its on offer at Somerfield this week.

No-one ever needs sauce, Clinton, but it's nice to have. Kind of like folk music and obstreperous Canadians...

Mario,

Out west in Washington where I learned to use the sauce we pronounced it "Wurster-sure" keeping the "shire" intact but slighly slurred.

In England it's Wooster sauce.
Now getting back to HP sauce. If Villain is proud of it along with being proud of Aston Villa that doesn't say too much for poor ol' HP sauce.
