My husband and I both love herring in cream sauce. Consequently, we do not eat it too often.January 30, 2011 10:40 pm at 10:40 pm #734267LemonySnicketParticipant
Extra salty matjas with onions (not too good for the heart or the breath though)January 30, 2011 10:53 pm at 10:53 pm #734268doodle jumpParticipant
I love all types of herrings. YummJanuary 30, 2011 10:55 pm at 10:55 pm #734269popa_bar_abbaParticipant
Shmaltz herring. Homemade. With white onion.
Also, it is assur to eat it without scotch. I am sorry for you “bourbon only” people, but herring needs the smokiness of scotch.

Oneg Shabbos Herring from Schwartz’s- SPICY-mmmmmm GoodJanuary 31, 2011 5:21 pm at 5:21 pm #734285
slimey?! ewww… oh, wait! this isn’t the p’tcha thread?!?! lol 😉January 31, 2011 5:32 pm at 5:32 pm #734286
Ya i was thinking to myself when i saw the p’tcha thread “the herring thread wasn’t bad enough?”January 31, 2011 9:11 pm at 9:11 pm #734287
I cannot believe that no one hear has noted the “new” herring flavors:
Danish (its a mix of herring and lox, with a great sauce)
There about 6-7 flavors to try. Schawartz’s makes them, Pomegranite carries a line up.
Am I the only fan?January 31, 2011 9:19 pm at 9:19 pm #734288
Those flavors are just add-ons of the originalJanuary 31, 2011 9:49 pm at 9:49 pm #734289
” just add-ons of the original “
Thats like saying a Acura is just a dressed up Accord.
No. The new flavors of herring are way better than the originals. In fact, I;m considering having a “herring station” at my kids’ kabbolas ponim, right along side the Sushi platter.
It makes as big a “raash” at my house as which dip to make that week. My kids are in charge of picking the flavor, and we debate the new arrival as compared to the previous week’s choice.
Try getting THAT sort of excitement out of matjes or shtigletzJanuary 31, 2011 9:52 pm at 9:52 pm #734290
Oh, all you women / girls…back to your side of the mechitza!
I mean, its not like we’re talking about a cream cake or miniature.
We’re talkin’ herring!January 31, 2011 10:30 pm at 10:30 pm #734291
Actually many Acura owners admit that it’s just a dressed up Accord (TL that is)
As far as Herring goes I really enjoy the new spicy flavors. The company Geshmack used to make a Scottish Herring with peppers, it was awesome.
No disrespect to you or your family
Enjoy your Herring

Am I the only fan?
I liked the wasabi.January 31, 2011 11:05 pm at 11:05 pm #734293
” I liked the wasabi. “
Whew! I was afraid I was the only adventurous one.January 31, 2011 11:21 pm at 11:21 pm #734294
Sorry for that knee-jerk reaction,
It’s just annoying that all these herrings are just another flavor of mayo
wasabi-mayo,danish-mayo, cream sauce-mayo, shtiglitz-mayo
mayo mayo mayo
I was at a Melaveh Malke the other week and i noticed that everything there had mayo: tuna, egg salad, cole slaw, potatoe salad, lox salad, herring
For once I would love to see a healthy kiddush: Lots of cut up fruit, veggies, a healthier version of cholent, kugel, no need for fatty cream cakes,January 31, 2011 11:22 pm at 11:22 pm #734295
Do you like Oneg Shabbos herring?January 31, 2011 11:25 pm at 11:25 pm #734296
How do you do it? I guess when I turn 70 and there is a yartzeit in shul I’ll appreciate it.
^MONIS^January 31, 2011 11:32 pm at 11:32 pm #734297
“a healthy kiddush”
You make a good point, and one which I’m a fan of. Still, the “bad” stuff is what makes a kiddush, and its also why the fatty heart-stoppers are served in small portions. Think the serving size of mashkeh. No one is saying its as healthy as milk or OJ, but no one’s saying you need 8-10 oz per day.
As far as the melaveh malkah menu, that’s why Sunday (spent outdoors, hopefully!) follows Shabbos. Its how you pay down the bill you ran up over the weekend.
Life is good… enjoy it!January 31, 2011 11:33 pm at 11:33 pm #734298NAG member 1Member

“Oneg Shabbos herring”
Yes, I had that one too, but forgot what’s inside. We’ve still got 3-4 varieties to try before going back for doublesJanuary 31, 2011 11:53 pm at 11:53 pm #734300
life is great
Can I come over for some Herring and mashke?February 1, 2011 12:04 am at 12:04 am #734301
” Can I come over for some Herring and mashke? “
Any time / any shul. Look for the table where the action is at, and that’s where you’ll find me. And the invitation is open to one and all, young and old alike.
Um, almost anyone. For the skirt-wearers, your table is upstairs, loaded with cut up fruits and veggies made specially for you!February 1, 2011 1:35 am at 1:35 am #734302lkwdfellowMember
I usually only eat herring & kichel (or crackers) at a Kiddush. Schwartz’s matjas is the best by far. Make a l’chayim or two on some geshmake bourbon & you have true oneg Shabbos!!February 1, 2011 7:04 am at 7:04 am #734303
