Being from Wisconsin our New Years dish was to eat pickled Lynn mentioned pickled herring....when I was young my grandmother who came from Germany ordered barrels of herring from Germany which were shared by my relatives
and pickled! Many nights we celebrated with my mother's pickled herring...pieces of herring in vinegar and onions. These days my son sends me wonderful pickled herring from Pike Place Fish Market in Seattle. They will mail it if anyone is
interested and it's much better than the jarred herring in the supermarkets.
