(A convent recipe from 1870) taken from the wonderful book, Food in England:
The very old form of relish [for beef] was made by nuns in a Yorkshire convent in 1870. Most of the large farms in the north made their own relish to eat with beef.
3/4 oz of cayenne pepper, 2 tablespoonfuls of soy, 3 cloves of garlic, tablespoonful of anchovies (these came in barrels and the scraping of the barrel was used), a few cloves , 3 or 4 shallots, 1 large spoonful of sugar and a quart of vinegar. pound all dry things with the dry sugar, chop and add the onions, etc., put into a leadless glazed demijohn with the vinegar, and cork lightly. This jar was then left at the foot of the stairs for a month, and everyone passing up and down to chapel (twice a day) had to give it a shake.
At the end of the month it was strained off through muslin into the tall glass bottles in the old fashioned cruet stands.
