It sure is good. Every single person that I gave some  at Christmas has remarked on it.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

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 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.
