Have you ever had an unnatural obsession with a certain food most people find disgusting?
Because I can’t get enough, I purchase it in a large, bulk size jar from Costco.
It’s pickled herring.
Most folks are grossed out by its silvery, glistening flesh…but I love it. Love it.
I love the salty-tangy taste. My mouth puckers when I think of it. I crave it.
I grew up in an Eastern European household where herring was a treat. Weird I know.
When people see the very large jar on the top shelf of my fridge, I can see them throw up a little in their mouth.
Sorry folks, I love herring almost as much as I love sardines.
It’s my life.
