    relish maker

    In 1859 Richard Henry Dana who wrote Two Years Before the Mast used the term Relish Maker in relation to an act. I think it means that it made the act good or sort sugar coated. Any other ideas?

    From a brief look at Google, I saw that this was said at a dining table. I suspect that "relish maker" was a person who made relish.

    Re: relish maker

    I think it means that he had something which caused him to relish these meals, the memory of how bad a meal could be.
