Bubbie started making this as a new bride in the 1960s. This involved the long process of chopping everything by hand. Over the years, Bubbie has modernized the process, doing everything in the Cuisinart in just minutes. It is her son-in-law’s favorite food and served at every holiday.


1 jar (12oz) herring fillets in wine sauce

2 hard boiled eggs

1 apple peeled

1 tbsp minced onion

1 tbsp sugar


Remove herring and onions from the jar, drain and save sauce. Put in food processor along with the rest of the ingredients. Chop together until well blended and smooth. Add enough wine sauce to moisten. Chill.
