Harvey's Sauce


  • 6 anchovies
  • 1 pint of strong vinegar
  • 3 table-spoonfuls of India soy
  • 3 table-spoonfuls of mushroom catchup
  • 2 heads of garlic bruised small
  • 1/4 ounce of cayenne
  • cochineal powder


Dissolve anchovies in vinegar, and then add to them India soy, and mushroom catchup, garlic, and cayenne. Add sufficient cochineal powder to colour the mixture red. Let all these ingredients infuse in the vinegar for a fortnight, shaking it every day, and then strain and bottle it for use. Let the bottles be small, and cover the corks with leather.
