Here is a recipe for a really good herring, G&T herring.
Boil together 3 dl water, 3 dl sugar and 1 dl vinegar (12%). Remove the pan from the heat and add the following:
1 sliced red onion
1-2 sliced carrots
2 star anise
10-15 whole rose peppercorns
Let the team cool the fridge.
Then add zest from 1 lemon and 1/2 orange and juice from the lemon. 1 dl gin and 3-4 cl Tonic Syrup.
Cut up around 1 kg of pickled herring into lagoon-sized pieces and leave everything in the fridge for at least 24 hours.
