What do you use it for, or on? Do you put it on meat, or poultry?

A classic sauce made from redcurrants and oranges, with a splash of port to give it a unique flavour.

Uses in the Kitchen
Serve alongside hot and cold meats, with gammon or with sausages. Use to enrich sauces or gravies for game or other meats.

Thanks. I'm sure your homemade is better than the store-bought.

Actually, I'd say no. Depends on the cook. In FRiend Lee's case, I'm sure hers is better than store-bought.

Case in point: I hate to say it, but some of my mother's homemade soups were not that great. Her bean soup and her split-pea soup were wonderful, but other kinds not so much. Campbell's did other varieties better.

I've never seen bottled Cumberland Sauce! Chuck, you do have a gift in finding the most arcane things!

(And thanks for the compliment, Jeff!)  :-*
