Fish Sauce No 1

(Sauces.) - (The Lady's Own Cookery Book)

One pound of anchovies, stripped from the salt, and rinsed in a little

port wine, a quarter of an ounce of mace, twelve cloves, two races of

ginger sliced, a small onion or shalot, a small sprig of thyme, and

winter savory, put into a quart of port wine, and half a pint of

vinegar. Stew them over a slow fire covered close; strain the liquor

through a hair sieve, cover it till cold, and put it in dry bottles. By

adding a pint of port wine and the wine strained that the anchovies were

rinsed in you may make an inferior sort. When used, shake it up: take

two spoonfuls to a quarter of pound of butter; if not thick enough add a

little flour.

Fish Sauce No 11

Boil a piece or two of horseradish in gravy; put into it a bit of mace

and lemon-peel; add a little anchovy, either before or after it has been

boiled; thicken with cream, and add a spoonful of elderberry vinegar:

let the acid be the last thing for fear of curdling it. If you have no

gravy, ketchup and water is a good substitute.

Fish Sauce No 13

Take two quarts of claret or port, a pint, or more, to your taste, of

the best vinegar, which should be tart, one pound of anchovies unwashed,

the pickle of them and all, half an ounce of mace, half a quarter of an

ounce of cloves, six or eight races of ginger, a good piece of

horseradish, a spoonful of cayenne pepper, half the peel of a lemon, a

bunch of winter savory and thyme, and three or four onions, a piece of

garlic, and one shalot. Stew all these over a slow fire for an hour;

then strain the liquor through a coarse sieve, and bottle it. You may

stew the ingredients over again with more wine and vinegar for present

use. When you use it, it must be put into the saucepan with the butter,

instead of water, and melt it together. If you keep it close stopped, it

will be good many years.
