    Perfect for my DH! He loved this and thought he was in heaven! Loved the use of allspice berry here too. Started this project 2 days ago, and what a lovely day to eat a pickled herring. The sugar was taken down to 1/4 cup to adjust for sweetness. Made for ZWT 6

    ZWT6: Another recipe I made just for my German hubby - right up his alley!! He loved it - I served it on homemade caraway-rye bread

    I think I'd prefer it with less sugar,but other than that I can't complain of anything. I'm just happy that I was able to make pickled herring at home. This was a first for me. The hardest part of this is the waiting period. Thanks for sharing. Made for Zwt 6.
