    Good morning all,

    After 5 minutes of pondering, decided to place link here.

    Per ...

    Much history in article for a web link.

    Note "garen ... disinfectant ... treat burns".

    Note "found fermentation ... to preserve food".

    Not in article, but for Americans surely our most famous Asian sauce - not just for fish - is "Ketchup". Originally for fish, it can even be used as a meal: 2 slices of white bread spread with ketchup is a sandwich for lunch, with or without the waxed paper if used. This is from "Old South" of pre Great Society years.

    Ketchup was brought here from Singapore by ancestor of the later John Heinz, US Senator of Pennsylvania.

    This article is fascinating - at least to me - re the history and value of using these ingredients.

    Wasn't pepper more valuable than gold in some European places ?

    Good afternoon Varuna,

    European sauce is a product subject to VAT and product of CAP - Common Agricultural Policy.

    An Asian sauce is the product of Asia and those of Europe and still at less cost than in Europe.
