Sometimes, when we want to giggle, we watch this clip of our Jonas in Hyde Park making the poor journalist from The Telegraph Newspaper try Surstromming fermented herring.

It’s worth the 3 minutes of your life.

Surstromming is fermented herring – the smell is so bad when you open it that people only ever do so outdoors.  It is very strong. However, it is a delicacy in Sweden and is eaten with flatbread wraps, potatoes and sourcream.

NOTE: Always store the tin chilled, never open inside, the tin will squirt when you open it due to pressure – and it is illegal to take onto most airplanes. So, now you know.
