Rick’s Pickled Northern

This guy has been pickling for a long time, and although you may think you don’t like pickled fish – you’d be surprised with this one!


5 lbs fish

3 cups water

5 T pickling spice

3 cups sugar

5 cups white vinegar

Boil for 1/2 hour, then let it cool.

Add 4 cups white chable, pack jars with vadalia onions, peppers to taste and also the fish.  refrigerate.

Instructions:  Soak the fish for 24 hours in a salt brine (with enough salt to float an egg).  Use a glass bowl/pan – no metal!  Drain the salt water and do not rinse the fish. Soak for 24 hours in the vinegar, mix twice and rinse well.  Begin pickling with the above ingredients!
