SEAFOOD SAUCES: from Anchovy Catchup to White Sauce

 

OYSTER SAUCE
(Directions for Cookery, 1851)


Take a pint of oysters, and save out a little of their liquor. Put them with their remaining liquor, and some mace and nutmeg, into a covered saucepan, and simmer them on hot coals about ten minutes. Then drain them. Oysters for sauce should be large.

Having prepared in another saucepan some drawn or melted butter, (mixed with oyster liquor instead of water,) pour it into a sauce-boat, add the oysters to it, and serve it up with boiled poultry, or with boiled fresh fish.

Celery, first boiled and then chopped, is an improvement to oyster sauce.
