Scandinavian Christmas, Day 11

Wow, today is the last day! I thought it only appropriate to end this series with a recipe for pickled herring. Seeing as I will be consuming mass amounts of this stuff in the next few days in a variety of flavors (creamed herring, wine herring, mustard herring...), I thought it'd be fun to try and make my own. So I asked Pernilla over from Swedish Corner - Down Under to share her recipe!

Pernilla is a Swede who is living in Australia. Pernilla's blog showcases all sorts of wonderful Scandinavian crafts and decor. She also shares many of her family's traditions, like Lucia day! I'm so glad she could join in and share her pickled herring recipe, thank you Pernilla!

Swedish Pickled Herring recipe:

200ml of sugar
200ml white vinegar
0,5 teaspoon of crushed white peppercorns
2 teaspoons of crushed pimentos/allspice berries
1 bayleaf
5 cloves

Let mixture come to a boil and make sure the sugar disolve.
Leave to cool on the stove.

Put in layers of herring and sliced Spanish red onion in a preferred jar.
Pour cool mixture into the jar and let it stay in the fridge for at least 1-2 days to set.


God Jul - Merry Christmas
Happy Holidays from Australia

Thank you, Pernilla!

And a huge thank you to everyone who participated and shared such wonderful recipes and crafts!! God Jul!
