Dutch Haring… Dangling or Sliced?

June 13th marks the official start of the Dutch Haring season! The launch takes place each year in Scheveningen and the first barrel of Hollandse Nieuwe (young haring caught between mid May and the end of June) is sold for the season. How do you eat Dutch haring (or like me… you don’t! 😉 )? The Dutchies consume 185 tons of it each year! The Amsterdammers serve it sliced on a plate and the rest of The Netherlands eat it whole while dangling it into their mouth! As you can see… my Dutch husband doesn’t come from Amsterdam! 🙂
