    A polish recipe. My Mom makes for Cristmas Eve. Just be sure to change the water while soaking. On New Years Eve after the toast it is Good Luck to have a bit of Herring.

      Of all the pickled herring recipes, this one is the best. The sugar gives the brine an even balance; it does not taste salty or sour.Just like my late mother used to make it. Thank You!

      One of my ex-mothers-in-law – my Israeli ex-mother-in-law – used to make this, and make an even bigger deal about how long it took her to make it, but now I see that though yes there’s some time between the making and the eating, it’s incredibly simple and easy to make. I made this yesterday, so I’ll have to wait a few days before I can report back on it. But for the moment, the simplicity and clarity of the instructions – and for the demystifying of this recipe – five stars, without a doubt!
