Alec Sauce
Sauces and Spicery
Historic

An old (16th Cent) sauce made from herrings. The form of the sauce is now lost, but it may have been similar to the Roman 'garum', a fermented fish sauce.

Thomas Owen's translation of the 10th Century 'The Geoponica' (Agricultural Pursuits) says that 'allec' is a sauce made from the residue left from the production of fermented fish sauces.
