This is sort of an arcane question.
In craft beer brewing often brewers want to match (clone) a commercial beer. If you want a ‘clone’ of some beer there is usually a place that can offer several approaches.
I am trying to get a pickled fish recipe that is a ‘clone’ of the recipe that the Vita folks use for their Herring in Wine Sauce
Vita’s product(for me) is what I call a heritage food – a food that has been part of family traditions and goes back decades and is usually associated with some celebrations like Christmas or New Years.
I have tried several recipes for pickled fish. They have been OK but in terms of matching the Vita product they have been a failure – bitter (too much vinegar probably).
Can anyone offer some suggestions or help?
