When I visited (and fell in love with) the Norwegian Canning Museum in 2013 I bought a souvenir that came from the very last sardine cannery in Norway.
I’ve been torn between wanting to eat it and wanting to keep it forever…but in the early days of this new year I finally decided to open it up.
Don’t they look beautiful, so precisely arranged?
Gareth fried them up with lemon juice and capers, and they were delicious on toast.
Also, as we had friends coming round that day, we’d made cupcakes the night before, and went a bit mad with the icing and the sprinkles left over from Christmas…
