LL> Bon appetit!

Of course he has to try it. All should try it and if they live to talk about it
they have a lifetime of bragging rights.

I tried it and it did not end well. My mom and grandmother both claim that

that often at christmas, it's more a fall thing. Instead we have herring in
jars with different kinds of vegetables and other things in the jar and also
something called Janssons Temptation (the name of the dish will probably be a
problem for the american christian right) which contains potatoes, onions and
other things

Again not a favourite of mine but my wife really likes it.
