How-To: Pickled Herring

Food & Beverage

Earlier this week I posted a Flashback to Eric Smilie’s sourdough bread tutorial that first appeared on the pages of CRAFT Volume 04. Visiting Eric’s site, Awesome Pickle, I found this great tutorial on how to make pickled herring. As a bonus, he included pictures and directions on the proper way to fillet fish. Thanks, Eric!

I'm a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.
