Scottish Kippers

Back to fish on Fridays!

A kipper is a whole herring that has been split from tail to head, gutted, salted, and cold smoked. In the UK and North America they are often eaten grilled for breakfast. In the UK, kippers, along with other preserved fish such as the bloater and buckling, were also once commonly enjoyed as a high tea or supper treat; most popularly with inland and urban working-class populations before World War II.

Hi, I think I should just let you know to save confusion! - that I am a different JoannaB from Joanna Bogle - though she is one of my fellow blogging friends and goes by the name auntiejoannawrites and she often talks in our diocese - Southwark. You can catch her blog here: http://joannabogle.blogspot.com/
Kind regards - the other JB!
