This is from a 1889 recipe book. Sounds interesting.

I didn't include the prep time, cause this does take a lot of prep!!

  2. Strain off the liquor, put into a stew-pan with the anchovies, whole pepper, cloves, mace; boil 1/2 an hour, skimming it well. Strain it from any sediment and when cold, pour it into small bottles; cork it down closely and store in a dry place. The sediment can be used for flavoring sauces.
