    I remember my grandmother eating them but I just don't think I'd like them. I do eat pickled herring. I love herring and cheese for a snack.

    I eat them ocasionally but don't really care for them. I am glad I have just discovered new ways of serving them and am going to try some. The suggestions may make me like them.....Great tips

    Love them mashed up with some good grainy mustard and a little chopped onion--make a sandwich and top with fresh tomato. Don't knock it unless you have tried it. If you only go with your nose to tell you what you should eat, you are missing out on alot of goodies.

    I have never tried them. Do they taste "fishy" I am not a big fish eater and forget it if it is very fishy. I think I would like to try them

    Me too! I like the ones in oil, prefer olive oil if I can find them. Just pick up a forkful of sardine, let the oil drip away a little and then on to a saltine, mmm good.

    I love sardines. I love them on thin slices of french bread or saltines. My favorite are in oil, but sometimes I get a craving for the ones in mustard. My DH hates them, can't stand the smell of them. So, sometimes when I have a craving, I shoo him out of the house and indulge. You would think that one little can of sardines would not upset such a big man, but you would be wrong. The faces he makes even when he sees them in our pantry. Silly man. YUM!!!

    Sardines packed in Hot Sauce straight out of the can. I eat them because they are easy, the Omega 3 and the bones provide calcium. A few crackers at the very end to take that taste down a bit.

    Certainly better than taking those big Omega3 pills, and a lot tastier. I like the big ones, skinless, boneless, packed in olive oil with good crackers.

    I think I would prefer a pill.

    This is so funny. My DH loves sardines too! I can take them or leave them but I know they are an excellent source of nutrients. Always keep some in the cupboard just for him.
    I'm too blest to be stressed. Amen to that!

    I love 'em...put them in a tossed green salad, eat them on a sandwich with hot sauce and mayo, also eat them with Saltines....I like the Tiny Tots.
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    I enjoy sardines (in oil) with a bit of mayo, either on saltines, or some grainy bread and salt & pepper~

    I can't stand the smell of them. My husband eats them when I am away ... apparently the three cats are quite an audience for him when he opens the can!

    I'm glad this came up because I generally don't think to buy them but I do like them now and then, and they're supposedly good for us. They remind me of my dad who served as a medic in WW2 for 3 years, and I think he lived on canned goods the whole time. When I was a kid, if he went to the grocery store he would bring home sardines, canned Vienna sausages (I suspect the Viennese people cringe at that name!), and - of course - Spam.

    Nope, sorry. I have to correct this in case it makes anyone else nervous about eating them. Nothing that comes in a can is raw. Canning is a heat process. Sardines are so thoroughly cooked that their bones are soft and considered edible. Eating them gives you a healthy dose of calcium. Crunch, crunch. I guess it's an acquired taste.

    Well drat. It's the second time today I've double posted, and I don't have a clue why it's happening. Sorry.

    I better get some tomorrow. If it wasn't so late I'd get some for night lunch. I love them right out of the can, but sometimes I have them for lunch on a plate with a nice heep of cottage cheese & some tomatoe slices & some sliced sweet onion. I am also going to try some of the ideas you all have. I always get the ones in spring water but I'm going to try the ones in olive oil.
