As I sat here munching on Fresh Bread and Herring - It came to me that some folks would be gagging at the wonderful taste of Pickled Herring, and a few other recipies I make.
So I thought - why not post a “weird food” thread to find more recipies?
I’ll start with 2
First up? Cold Beet soup.
Take a few cooked beets, Peel, and then slice them to the size of half a McDonalds French Fry. - get about two cups after processing.
Add a peeled and diced Cucumber.
Add 5-10 radishes sliced into quarter slized thickness.
Take a bunch of green onions - like you buy in the store, and chop the green part up into shavings.
Add two tablespoons of shredded fresh dill.
If you’re a salt a holic, add a quarter teaspoon of salt - back it off if you don’t enjoy salt licks.
Add a quarter teaspoon of vinigar, and then follow with a half gallon of buttermilk - The fresher the better.
Stir and place in the fridge for 5 hours.
Stir again and serve. It’ll look like peptol Bismol with chunks.
Buy the salted Herring - It comes in tubs. Rince and soak the salted herring over two days - meaning, every six hours swap the water, and get the salt out of the salted herring.
Next - clean the herring - get the gut sack out, and slice into 2 inch chunks.
Add a few onions - 2 fish to one onion ratio is what I follow. Add some pepper corns. 3 to 5 per fish.
Then make a brine of three cups water to every half cup of vinegar. Adjust taste accordingly since I love vinegar.
Make sure the fish and onions are covered and place in fridge. If you’re an absolute wimp - add some sugar to taste.
Enjoy the raw salted pickled fish after two days of brine. I suggest french bread, and a chaser of cheese (blue cheese style) to follow.
