Anybody like to eat kipper snacks? They're kippered filets of herring in a can, kinda like sardines or anchovies but much better to eat plain, IMO. Really nice smokey taste, and about $1.39 a can or so. I think they'd be good for semi-long-term storage-- the ones I have expire 12/2012. There's also 19 grams of protein in a can, which is 38% RDV. A bit high in sodium, but if you're into your emergency stash you're probably more concerned about short term survival rather than long term health. Anyway, you might give them a try next time you hit the grocery store.

Mmm, kipper snacks. I like most canned seafood. Smoked oysters are probably my favorite, followed by canned salmon. Kippers aren't far behind.

I have never heard of kipper, so that means I probably don't like it.

Good stuff, used to get them packed in my lunch as a kid. Still like them, but then if it comes out of the ocean I usually like it anyway.

"You eat that outside!!" "And I don't want to smell any open can or lid in my trash can, either!"


That's what my wife will say if I buy kippers.

Kippers is good stuff, especially on rye crackers.

You guys ever try pickled herring? Being Dutch, that was a traditional food eaten at christmas in our family.
Pretty horrible stuff really. :rolleyes: Then there's roll mop herring, another Dutch treat, but it's hard to get over here.

Part of my fathers family is first generation Swedish. As a kid we had about 15 different kinds of pickled herring or raw herring in cream sauce at every holiday. Every one had their specialty and as a kid I had to eat them all. If I remember correctly the Swedish name for this stuff is sil or sill. We used to call it swill and get a smack in the head. Another happy childhood memory :) .

Both sides of my family are mostly Dutch, but we had a Swedish "Grandmaw ConeyIsland" as we used to call her, mixed in there somewhere. She came over as a teenager to work in a hotel in florida, and one of those New York "Palookas" snapped her up.
She never could speak english very well, but she was the best cook in the family.
Her holiday breads were legend. She called it soemthing like "veertabra". The majic ingredient is the cardamon, of course.
We still got that recipe. :P

Don't forget Crumkaggen. Crumkaggen filled with whipped heavy cream, berries, and powdered sugar. Kinda like an oversized Norwegian cannoli.....with a crisp shell.

Awww hell. Now I'm hungry!
