I haven't had any for many years,but when I was kid,we often would enjoy the very good quality ones on toast for brunch of a weekend.This was because Dad was home then and he would prepare them with fresh tomato,very finely chopped onion,and a touch of black cracked pepper!! There was always a piece of lemon on our plates as well. Hmmmm.... haven't thought of these for ages!!! Thanks Finy, for these lovely childhood memories!!
And by the way,I do LOVE the FRESH ones which we could get from the markets when I was a kid. Fresh ones are scrumptious!
I buy Brunswick for the dogs. Fatty gets them in springwater and Skinny gets them in oil. (real names not used to protect the innocent) Hahahahahaha. A couple of years ago I had 160 tins of them. "Somebody" found them for $1 a tin and bought the lot. It still doesn't make me want to eat any :(
Me too. If no sauce available I might consider lemon juice or something similar BUT I do believe that are very good for you --same as any fish and the bones are a good source of calcium for your bones. Seem old fashioned now, but so is Hypol. They are an oldie but a goodie. And very cheap too.
Yes, occasionally. Should do more often. A friend taught me to make them more palatable by draining the liquid, sprinkle some spice and chilli Powder, leave it to marinate for a few minutes, then shallow fry in a little oil. Goes well with rice & lentils.
I love sardines. I like the tiny tins of King Oscar sardines. I just mash them onto toast. If I didm;t have toast, I just eat them out of the tin. They must be in oil and a little salt sprinkled on them.
They are very, very good for you - probably because the bones are still in them.
HOWEVER, I have been told to avoid them if you have any susceptibility to gout.
But love them I do.
Years & years ago, I used to eat them on toast with a sprinkling of curry powder on them, but I havenít eaten them since then, even though Iíve had a couple of tins of them in my pantry as well, for a few years now!
