I really like kippers on crackers. Although not dried like your asking about, they are smoked!

When I lived in Bremerton, just across the Sound from Seattle, we used to get smoked and dried salmon, better even than herring. They called it Indian Candy - wonderful stuff! But herring is good too!

Dried herring

When I lived in NJ the grocery stores used to have then on occasion, they were very stong flavored, salty, and smoky. I used to soak them in warm water before fryin' 'em up with some eggs; truly yummy.

Russ Kendall's is a fish house on Lake Superior, at Knife Rivers Minnesota. They have the best smoked salmon, trout, whitefish and other kinds I don't remember. I pick up as much as I can afford every time I go up north.

They do ship, but only in the cooler months, and they don't have a website.

My first experience with them was in 1960 in a pool hall in Arkansas. They were $.05 ea.

Today I use them a lot like you would anchovies. Pizza topping is one use and I use them in making a kick a$$ salad dressing along with a herbed vinegar, a seeded cucumber, garlic, capers, a bit of sugar, and a good olive oil drizzled into a blender.

I read some comments about deboning and cooking them. That's funny! Ever try to debone a anchovie?

In the St. Louis area, the Schnucks Markets carry them.

I miss Blind Robins and grew up eating them in local taverns in NE Iowa in the 60's.

I go to a restaurant in Victoria that serves kippers for breakfast but one belches them all day.

Blind Robins!?! That's what we knew them as back in Ohio, Lance. I did see smoked herring in the cooler case by the grocery deli a few years back and brought home a small tray. They were nowhere near as dry as the ones we were able to get back home, so we haven't bothered getting any more here. I'd forgotten about them again until this thread surfaced. I'll have to check the grocery stores in the Akron/Canton area for them the next time we visit our kids.

I've seen Olsen's covered on the food channel years ago, lutefisk special, I believe.
