A piquant cold sauce based on pureed pickled fruits (dates &c) rather than the rotted fish of Worcestershire sauce or Harvey's.
Produced in both a liquid and a thickened version, most famously by Goodall, Blackhouse and Co, established in Leeds in the 1830's, and now, as 'Goodalls of Ireland' at Tallagh ouside Dublin, where they still manufacture both versions.
The currently most significant Yorkshire-made brand of the liquid version, Henderson's of Sheffield, dates back to the late 19th Century and seems to have a remarkable ability to inspire a certain, rather distinctive, style of poetry, such as;
The marvellous thing about Relish
EXTERNAL LINK: Henderson's Relish
The thick version of Yorkshire Relish is now relatively rare in England, but has a continuing popularity in Ireland where it is produced under the 'YR' brand by Robert Roberts.
