Title: Gentleman's Relish
Post by: achookwoman on November 19, 2012, 10:43:55 am
This is a very English recipe,  so I am dedicating it to CC on reaching 5000 posts. :-* :-* :-*
This recipe is adapted from one by Andrew McConnell, published in The Gourmet Magazine., to be made in the TMX.
NEED
Place all ingredients into TMX bowl.

250mls Apple Cider Vinegar.
85g pitted prunes
125g tomato sauce
65g Brown sugar
50mls Worcestershire Sauce
4 Spring onions
3 cloves of garlic
2 Anchovy fillets, (I used tinned ones)
3 cloves
1 Tablespoon of Mustard Powder
2 teaspoons of Allspice
pinch of chilli powder.
Do
Cook 30 mins,/gentle speed/100 o.  Take cap out for last 5 mins.
Mix, 30 seconds/sp 8., or until finely mixed and no lumps.
Bottle while hot into sterile jars.
Makes 500 mls/
Will keep for 6 months refrigerated.

NOTES>  Taste test
Made as per recipe this would be perfect served as a spread on sandwiches, or condiment with hot or cold roast beef or pork.
To eat on hot buttered toast or crumpets,  I would double the Anchovy. This is a personal taste preference as I love Anchovy .

Does your gorgeous gentleman DH like it Chookie?  It is a pantry relish for sure Gretchen, I have everything as well apart from anchovy fillets at the moment and they aren't hard to find.

At Andrew Mc Connell's Restaurant in Melb,  it is served with Steak.  I think it can be lightly spread on toast,  a bit like Vegemite.   I think this recipe is nicer than the bought one from Fortum and Masons.

I've never heard of this before Chookie.  I think my FIL would like it.

For all the English people out there I thank you  achookwoman.. I remember eating this as a child. My dad  was an Anglophile having served in  WWII  in England and elsewhere. He loved savoury and I expect some  English  lasses as well and brought home many English  foods  into our home.  My mother was Dutch /German. She taught me about  pumpernikel!

Cheese. Spread it on a on a good piece of cheddar .  Stick your finger in it and lick.

You know how they have  chocolate body paint these days , well think  Gentleman's Relish or Patum Peperium as I knew it.

achookwoman  how about  a blood pudding recipe?

Gert

The relish looks great, but I am sorry I can't accept blood pudding.  :o :o

Gert,  I think I will leave the blood Pud to you.  I will help you eat it.
Katie,  the little pot is the one it came in,  that I bought in London.

I already gave the liverwurst a go. Not so,sure I could make blood pudding .   But if I knew a butcher.........perhaps.

Post by: Cuilidh on November 19, 2012, 07:18:56 pm
Love the look of this.  Being vegetarian I am not too sure about the anchovies, and I guess they would definitely make a difference to the taste - I might force myself to buy some, but then I probably wouldn't eat the relish.  That's a bit of a dilemma.  I will have to think about this because it sounds so tempting.

CC , my pleasure.
Marina,  it wouldn't be the same,  but I was wondering if you could sub.  Black olives for the Anchovy.
I like DJ's idea of spreading on Crumpets ,  with scrambled eggs on top.

There are already anchovies in  Worcestershire Sauce . I agree with achookwoman. Salty black olives might sort of work but vegetarians
 probably would not use Worcestershire Sauce either.  Black cavier would work. Are fish eggs ok for vegetarians as they are not really fish  yet. Umm. Don't know about that. Some vegetarians may not eat chicken but will eat the egg.

There are all sorts of 'shades' of vegetarianism, Gert, some do eat fish and chicken, some don't, some eat dairy and eggs, some don't.  Although I don't eat fish I am sure I have inadvertently eaten things with anchovies mixed in (such as Worcestershire Sauce, before I started making my own).  It doesn't 'upset' me unduly if this happens, however, I do prefer to avoid these things, but some vegetarians do get very stressed if they realise that they had accidentally eaten meat or fish related items.

Anyway, that is getting well off-subject.  This recipe appeals to me so I might go the anchovies route and not eat the relish myself or I might try the black olive option - we'll see how the mood takes me!
Title: Re: Gentleman's Relish
Post by: Gertbysea on November 19, 2012, 10:29:54 pm
Cuilidh you are so right. My DS and family are Hare Krishna's  and they have a very interesting diet. My wonderful  D-I- L  can make just about anything work and bakes the most desirable cakes and muffins without eggs.  I think being a vegetarian requires a lot more imagination  when meal planning.  Endless possibilities where as I sometimes give up and feed the man what he actually wants which is bangers and mash. ;D



Gert
Title: Re: Gentleman's Relish
Post by: Cuilidh on November 19, 2012, 10:46:15 pm
Vegetarianism isn't that hard, just don't use meat or fish, but everything else!  I know the Hare Krishna's use aesofitida (that may be not the correct spelling) instead of onions and garlic.  I didn't realise that they didn't eat eggs either.
Title: Re: Gentleman's Relish
Post by: Gertbysea on November 19, 2012, 10:57:26 pm
Yes they use a lot of  asafoetida . There are various spellings but it is commonly  known as Devils Dung and it is one of the worst  smells I have ever encountered. I used to keep it double bagged in it's jar and in the garage and I swear I could still smell it. They are not so strict  that they do not eat onions and garlic which is also a no no apparently .

Gert
Title: Re: Gentleman's Relish
Post by: Cuilidh on November 19, 2012, 11:54:42 pm
Yes, it does have a unique aroma, doesn't it.  It doesn't 'agree' with me so I never use it.
Title: Re: Gentleman's Relish
Post by: Katiej on November 20, 2012, 02:38:39 am
Katie,  the little pot is the one it came in,  that I bought in London.

I just "Googled" it Chookie and they seem to came in allsorts of delightful little pots like yours.  Quintessentially English!

I asked my DH (who is English but has been here since here was about 6 years old) and he's had it before.  I'm definitely making it for him and my FIL.  Thanks Chookie for another great recipe  :D
Title: Re: Gentleman's Relish
Post by: Gertbysea on November 20, 2012, 02:54:56 am
I am making  it now and it smells wonderful.  Had only  150 mls of cider  vinegar  so topped it up with malt. Used about 6 anchovies and more than a dash of chilli.
Heaven in a Thermothingy.

Letting it cool for a few minutes effort blitzing.

You don't need 5-spice Phatassphairy, you might be confusing this with the Allspice mentioned in the recipe.

I'm definitely making this as soon as i get hold of the prunes. Sounds delicious.

Grilled cheese on toast Judy.

Katie,  the original recipe was with Cape Grim short ribs and mustard leaf. The ribs were simmered first for 3/4 hours and then finished off in the oven.  Sounds very nice.  I was able to buy some short ribs at  Safeway on Sat. Bet your DH would like them. ;D

I have just put this into its jars. It is lovely. I boo booed when I was putting the tomato sauce in and put about 100 ml to much ( I was in a dream I think). I decided not to worry, it is not as thick as I imagine it should be but the taste is still lovely. I am serving it with cold meats at lunch on Tuesday and then giving everyone a jar to take home.
Thanks Chookie.

Chookie - this is just wonderful!  I made it a couple of days ago - gave 1 jar to our neighbour who is a lovely gentleman in every sense of the word - so quite fitting :D

Thought I had all the ingredients on hand but when it came to the tomato sauce there was none around - so used tomato paste.

I'm having some right now!!  Thank you so much for this - it's a firm family favourite!! :D :-* :-*

Was just about to make another batch of this at DS's request when I found I had no mustard powder.  Discovered a lot of mustard seed though - and this (http://www.vegetablegardener.com/item/3479/how-to-grind-mustard-seeds-and-make-mustard) just confirmed the solution! ;)

Chookie - this is marvellous stuff!  Thank you so much for the recipe!! :-*

It sure is good. Every single person that I gave some  at Christmas has remarked on it.

Chookie - you mentioned something was in The Age about this wonderful relish . . . was this it? :D

This is the link - and I've copied and pasted the relevant text below . . . .

http://www.goodfood.com.au/good-food/cook/why-rice-can-be-risky-20130309-2frx0.html

Also know as Partum Peperium, this deliciously salty blend of anchovies, butter and herbs was first made in 1828 and is still produced today by Elsenham Quality Foods in Elsenham, England. Spread it sparingly on thinly sliced dry toast and perhaps top with a fine slice of cool cucumber or something sharp such as mustard cress, watercress or a scant smear of freshly grated wasabi. It is particularly high in umami, so consider adding a little to a meaty gravy, a white sauce to pour over cauliflower cheese, blended through some creme fraiche with a little chervil spread on a cracker as a simple canape, or make a paste in a mortar and pestle with young rosemary leaves and insert into knife punctures in a shoulder of lamb before slow-roasting. It pretty well goes with every savoury food from England in the 19th century, in lesser or greater amounts according to taste.

GF,  you are a very clever person.   Thanks.    I couldn't work out how to do this.

I've just found this and as my lovely dad is very fond of Gentleman's Relish, I will make some for him.  Just a question though, please - does it freeze?

Uni has started a comprehensive list of foods that can be frozen here (http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=9778.0) but I see that it's not on the list but she might not have tried it yet :)
I see Chookie says it keeps in the fridge for six months.

I think it would freeze,  although with such a long shelf life I haven, t tried it.  Thanks CC.

Made this delicious relish today. To keep it vegetarian, I substituted the anchovies with nutritional yeast flakes.

Just wondering how long this would last on the pantry shelf. Chookie you say it lasts 6 months in the fridge, but if I want to make it up ahead for xmas hampers, how long before xmas would be safe to make it, do you think?

You could make it and just keep it in the fridge. Great gift. Can't make enough if it.

I made some about a year ago and just opened the last one, as long as you sterilise the jar and it seals properly it will last for ages.

So I guess Aussie Brenda, that you stored yours in the pantry for that length of time.  That's great, not a lot of shelf space in the fridge to keep all the xmas goodies in at that time of year.
