Christmas herring from Huseby

After work today it was time for some mother alone shopping. I have a long list of things to buy and came about halfway through it. That's okay though, tomorrow is another mother alone shopping day, and then I will first meet a friend for coffee and excanging of gifts and chatter. Usually we eat dinner around 5pm, but because of me being away, and my husband taking part in a Christmas lunch at work ,we didn't eat untill two hours later today. So it was late when I finally had the kitchen ready for some "making food for Christmas". Stuffed with spaghetti carbonara I was happy that I had not planned more sweets. Instead I had Christmas herring on my list.
Herring in a sweet and sour sauce is perfect on home made bread, and can be eaten any time of the day. I always make alot, fill glasses and have several Christmas presents ready at once.

Christmas herring from Huseby
2dl vinegar
2dl ketchup
6dl sugar
1dl water

heat untill the sugar has melted,
add 2dl olive oil

let the sauce cool
dice 10 herring filets
cut 4 onions into small pieces.
Mix everything and fill glasses.
make a cup of tea,
cut a slice of homemade bread,
spread herring on top,

And while enjoying your tasty bread you are welcome over to Britt-Arnhild's House in the Woods. But be careful so you don't spill sweet and sour sauce on your laptop.

overhere people are not too thrilled about hering, but coming from Germany, I like it!

I really should try out this recipe.
The problem is, I think the only person who will like it is me!

Hi Gudl - dl means decilitre, which is 1/10 of a litre. I am sorry I am not familiar with the American measuring system.
