Just, "down the hatch". I love matjes herring. One of my favorite appetizers at home.
I've been enjoying since I was a kid. It's also nice on a cracker. Garnish as you see fit.
I remember when once, when I was in Denmark, I probably ate it twice a day.
Here in Dallas, it's widely available sold loose in wine sauce. And, also by the can.
It's slightly sweet, vinegary, and a little spicy (not, hot spicy).
I probably enjoy it the most, just on a plate with fresh buttered rye or pumpernickel bread. Maybe a few pieces of red onion, too.
Good thread! Thank you.
