Just like store bought. I got this from a neighbor when I lived in Minnesota. Great with Northern Pike.


Ingredients Amount
1. Large (1 gallon ) jar with lid. One
2. Fish, raw, one inch pieces Approx. 3 - 4 pounds (1/2 gallon)
3. Pickling salt 5/8 cup
4. Vinegar, white 2 cups
5. Vinegar, white 1 1/2 quarts
6. Port wine, white 1 quart
7. Sugar, granulated 2 cups
8. Mixed pickling spice 1 Tablespoon
Onion, sweet, 1/4 inch slices Equal to amount (volume) of fish.

1. Mix items 3 and 4 in the jar until in solution. Add fish and refrigerate for 6 days. Shake daily.
2. On the 7th day, drain fish, discard the brine and rinse the fish and the jar thoroughly with fresh water.
3. Prepare onions, slice inch thick and separate into rings.
4. Pack onions and fish into the jar in alternate layers.
5. Mix items 5, 6 and 7 until dissolved.
6. Add item 8 and pour mixture over the fish and onion slices.

Excellent with bony fish such as pickerel, pike, etc.
