Alec Sauce

Sauces - Table
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.
