750 grams matjes herrings soaked for 25 minutes
6 onions finely chopped
6 granny smith apples finely chopped
6 large hard boiled eggs mashed
12 nice or any plain sweet biscuits
2 tablespoons vinegar
4 tablespoons sugar
Rinse the herrings and pat dry. Place the biscuits into a food processor and blitz to fine crumbs.
Place the crumbs into a large bowl.
Add the onions, and apples and eggs to the crumbs.
Place the herring into the processor and blitz till finely chopped. Add the herring to the crumb mixture and then add the vinegar and sugar.
Mix till everything is well combined. Place the herring into sterilized glass jars the and place in the fridge.
The herring needs a full 24 hours to settle and then taste to see if more sugar or vinegar is needed. I personally prefer my herring a bit sweeter.
This herring can be frozen and taken out the night before you want to use it. Defrost in the fridge.
This quantity will make approximately 2 liters enjoy
