i know that rebranding them as sardines has improved the sales but i still think of them as spratts

as well as pie or bbq they make a very nice pickled fish

good vinegar,salt,soft brown sugar,dill,and optional pepper/chilli flakes

takes about a week in the fridge for best flavour and melted bones

ps some add onion but i like em without

Ooh: that's a thought: the old chap will be away for the last part of the week and my lovely fish man may have sprats: the old chap can't stand them so I could have a sprat feast

Are herbs also seasonal? What about tropical fruits?

Why is cauliflower listed as "going out of season" for February but not listed for January?
