Jellied eel is a traditional English dish that originated in London’s East End in the eighteenth century and was sold through numerous eel, pie, and mash houses. The European eel was common in the Thames at the time and the eel became a staple food for London’s less well-off population.
A dish of traditional jellied eels consists of chopped eels that have been boiled in a spiced stock and allowed to cool and set.
