I'm a huge fan of Worchesershire sauce and this tasted eerily like it. Yum! Now I make a version of this magical elixir every year and it is lovingly labeled "W-Sauce" in my fridge as a staple ingredient. You can also eat the actual walnut slices as well, but the sauce is my jam! Pair the walnuts with a nice cheddar cheese and you've got a winning combo.
