Today in Toronto Star (8)
Basic pickled herring is available at most supermarkets. It's always refrigerated, either with the jars of Straub's pickles or in a special case by the seafood department. Gourmet stores (my dad recommends Bruno's Fine Foods on Yonge St.) usually have better brands such as Abba (Sweden) and Viking (Finland). On Roncesvalles Ave., you can buy the stuff straight from the barrel at some delis – not for the faint of heart.
Family recipes are treasured heirlooms. Writer hopes to encourage others to preserve delicious parts of their history.
