If you love sardines and the rich, tangy preserves known as Branston Pickle, your ship has come in. This is an easy mixture of sardines and pickle to spread on hot buttered toast.
Sardine butter is a flavoured butter made by mixing 1 part puréed sardines with almost 3 parts butter. This blended mixture is then forced through a sieve. It’s used as a garnish for grilled meats and fish. The sardines used are canned ones that have been filleted and then preserved in unflavoured oil.
