pickling herring

Asked February 19, 2013, 7:21 PM EST

Do you have a booklet or an easy recipe for pickling herring? I have all these fresh herring and I don't want them to go to waste. Is there a risk of botulism like there is in canning?

We do have a booklet about pickling fish, actually produced in Washington for the three Pacific Northwest states, here is the link: http://cru.cahe.wsu.edu/CEPublications/pnw0183/pnw0183.pdf
Follow the directions closely for safe pickling. Thank for using our 'Ask an Expert System'
