|Found this link for a quick, easy recipe for pickled herring:
For pickling spices, I am going to suggest using at least two bay leaves, a couple of whole cloves, a couple of dashes of dill (or a couple of whole dill heads), a couple of dashes of allspice and a few peppercorns. Of course, adjust for personal taste. (That is what I used in the larger jar.) I let the herring marinate for 24 hours and they were done!
In the smaller jar, I used Clausen's pickle juice--and my SO and I far prefer the homemade marinade.
