Coined in its current sense by the English cookery writer Dorothy Hartley in her book Food in England in 1954, but probably derived from a similar dialect word with variant spellings (e.g. tranklement, tanchiment) used before that date across North and Central England and meaning "ornaments, trinkets; bits of things".

tracklement (plural tracklements)

(Britain, rare) A savoury condiment (for example a mustard, relish or chutney), especially one served with meat.
