    Drool over it.

    There is a great recipe for pickled herring, beets and chopped apple.


    Sounds awful but it's wonderful.

    This is unfair... I get mad because the brine drips over my shirt, but it goes straight to the mouth from the jar. Never realized there was other ways of eating them..

    I prefer mine in sour cream with onions. Most frequently, I eat it with a fork over the sink. One of my favorite restaurants is a place called Vertin's in Ely, Minnesota. The reason it is a favorite is the fact that they always put a bowl of pickled herring on the table when you are seated.

    Many Northern Wisconsin Super clubs put herring out in their relish trays, that's where I learned to like them. I'm with you Michael, best eaten straight from the jar! I like the cream sauce best.

    When I was growing up, on every New Years Eve that I can remember, at the stroke of midnight, my mom had to have a piece of pickled herring- she said it was a superstition and it brought good luck to the person who ate it.....as for me, pickled anything in a jar- but especially fish- no thanks. I'll find my good luck elsewhere! (P.S. my mom hated it too, but insisted on having it every year)

    If you dont get the roll-mops, get the filets(not the peices-a little more but worth it. Then roll them around your favorite pickled veg. Eat 'em plain or marinate in sour cream, YUM!

    This past weekend, I got to enjoy some schmaltz herring with my father inlaw. It was good enough to cry over...or maybe it was the mound of raw onions...

    http://icecook.blogspot.com/2006/02/herring-salad-sldarsalat.html

    I change the recipe to my own liking like this:

    Herring salad

    1 tart apple, diced
    5-6 slices pickled red beet(I use regular canned beets)
    2-3 fillets pickled herring (I tend to use more)
    1/2 - 2/3 cup mayonnaise (I sometimes add sour cream)
    A little minced red onion

    Take about half a cup of mayonnaise and stir well to prevent lumps. Cut the herring fillets into small slices and the apple and beet into small cubes. Add these with the onion to the mayonnaise and mix well. The salad should be a rose-pink colour - if not, add some of the juice from the beets (or cheat and use red food colouring

    Delicious!

    Oh, man. I love marinated herring. From Matjes (sweet vinegar wine sauce) style to herring in sour cream with onions. Yup! Right out of the jar will do just fine.

    I tried this last year at Christmas,Selyodka Pod Shuboy (Herring in a Fur Coat)(recipe at: http://www.recipezaar.com/289159).

    It was excellent. I used chopped herring in cream sauce in place of the smoked herring (schmaltz). I substituted lightly sauted (not browned) shredded hash brown potatoes and steamed fresh matchstick carrots (just softened in steam). Let each cool and assemble ingredients in the recipe plus onions from the herring jar. I grated the pickled beets. Can be made a day or two ahead and kept in fridge.

    Serve alone or with cocktail rye as an appetizer.

    I hate to have to be the one to bring this to your attention, but schmaltz is rendered chicken fat, not smoked herring.

    Actually, there is something called schmaltz herring. It's very fatty herring.

    Shmaltz herring is filleted mature herring, preserved in brine and brown sugar.

    I like all kinds of pickled herring but my favorites are the ones in sour cream und onion. I like them right from the jar onto a thin slice of Finn Crisp toast with carraway seed.

    Actually the herring called for in the recipe is salted and not smoked as I stated (my error). The "Schmaltz herring is cured by being covered with coarse salt and left with a weight on top for up to four days." Ref: http://www.jhom.com/topics/salt/herring.htm

    In any case I didn't use the salted herring in the original recipe, I used the pickled type instead and it turned out very well.

    put the pickled herring in a food processor with some onions and run until it's smooth, add some chopped hardboiled eggs - herring spread! great on a toasted bagel...
