Thread: Kippers

    Default Kippers

    Be truthful. How many people here eat and enjoy kippers?

    A friend of mine used to be a biker. He told me this weird tale of how they
    would win this pin that consisted of a pair of wings. I won't go into
    details, but they would get these wing pins for eating some strange culinary
    delights.

    He abhorred kippers. His dad used to eat them, and as a kid, he was forced
    to eat them, and had a phobic revulsion to them. So, I merely said, "We
    were a much tougher motorcycle club than yours. In my motorcycle club, we
    had to eat a can of kippers."

    I just love them, some brands more than others. Plain. With crackers.
    Some with mustard or ketchup added before packing. My favorite is the
    plain.

    Scrumpdillyiscious!

    My wife has a rule that I wash out the cans and lid and sink after having
    them, which I always do, but she can smell a can of kippers at half a mile,
    and can walk in after I've had some and smell them even if I clean up with a
    6hp gas power washer and surgical cleaning solution.

    Love them! Can't get real kippers around here. The ones in tins are
    nasty and not worth the trouble.

    I love the canned, and probably would become orgasmic if I ever got the real
    thing.

    You're suggesting fish oil as a lubricant for masturbation. Shame on
    you.

    You haven't tasted kippers until you taste the real thing. Forget the
    canned.

    I doubt you'll find very many Americans who have ever eaten kippers.
    (All of you RFC regulars who have eaten kippers may now chime
    in.)

    Wikipedia suggests they're typically eaten at breakfast.
    Americans usually eat pork (bacon or sausage) and eggs for
    their breakfast protein, although a lot of people eat cold
    cereal, hot cereal, smoothies, or even breakfast burritos.
    Still, the traditional American breakfast is eggs with bacon
    or sausage.

    My wife served kippers one Christmas morning. Unfortunately, that was
    the Christmas that I came down with a stomach flu. Nothing stayed down
    for me that day, and it is probably unfair, but it turned me against
    kippers. It didn't help that my dog would not eat my leftovers, and she
    used to eat cat crap.

    I have had gravlox at a breakfast buffet in Germany. It was good.

    I don't think there is a typical American breakfast... and most
    Americans do not eat bacon and eggs for breakfast at home, that's a
    holdover from years ago and the stereotype promoted by the fast
    food/chain eateries. But I think at home very few people nowadays
    prepare any cooked dishs for breakfast except when company is presnt,
    least not in the US.

    I haven't eaten eggs for breakfast since childhood and I very rarely
    eat bacon... last I ate bacon has to be more than ten years ago. When
    I eat eggs it's for lunch or dinner, usually an omelet with
    vegetables... very rarely contains meat and then it's ham... my
    favorite egg dish is a potato, onion, pepper fritatta, with whatever
    applicable LOs. I'll estimate that I consume six dozen eggs a year,
    and that's for all usages. My breakfast always consists of two big
    mugs of black coffee. Then a couple hours later a brunch of fresh
    fruit, cheese, and bread. In winter I like to add steel cut oatmeal.
    I just can't imagine first thing out of bed frying bacon and eggs and
    then the mere thought of having to force that down nauseating. I just
    finished brunch; three very good nectarines, a half a small loaf of
    delicious semolina bread baked in Brooklyn, and a few slices off a
    wedge of Jarlsburg.

    This one for tomorrow:

    I have someone who brings me wonderful care packages from:
    http://www.northshorefarms.com/cart/
    Their web site is new and in progress... the Catering section is up,
    sorta.

    <raising hand>

    Gotta have 'em in Texas. Everyone's a millionaire.

    Several stores sell vac-packed and loose kippers and smoked trout (better).
    We have every kind of smoked fish. Pretty easy to make at home, too.

    My Dad made sardine sandwiches as treats when we did something really
    good so I developed a taste for sardines. The opposite of how
    your friend reacted. Sometimes it was canned kippered herring instead
    of canned sardines.

    Some of the cruise lines serve kippers for breakfast, so I tried them.
    It was pretty good, but I would rather have the lox.

    Not locally, sadly. Not much in the way of smoked fish around here other
    than salmon and the occasional trout. Perhaps on the East Coast, there
    are real kippers. More likely to be the demand.

    Maybe not. They are so very different, you might not like them at all.

    ==
    Many moons ago when I was a meat manager, I stocked smoked kippers for
    some of my customers but never made any money on them as I threw out
    more than I sold. I tried them once and my darling wife said that once
    was enough and they were to never stink up her kitchen again. I
    readily agreed and peace prevailed for a while,
