About Leeds Sauce 

Leeds Sauce is a rhubarb ketchup with ingredients that attempt to put the flavors of Leeds into a condiment. Over the past two years Popeye Collective have worked with different communities across Leeds to gather ingredients. 

The recipe is made up of intercepted forced rhubarb collected with Bramley Elderly Action in Pudsey, sugar infused with white rose petals picked with primary school kids in Headingley and vinegar made with beer from every pub on the Otley Run. It is infused with ginger inspired by an archeological dig on the side of the Tetley’s Brewery and the salt has been collected door to door from communities around the city. 

We’ve worked with local food experts, chefs and farmers to help refine the recipe. You are now invited to visit the Leeds Sauce pop-up processing plant at Trinity Leeds where you can witness the journey, the people and the places that informed the development of the recipe. 

Come and join us to be a part of the tasting panel, help us to develop the final flavors of the sauce and fill up your own bottle to take home.
