BEST PRACTICES FOR HANDLING HERRING PRODUCTS TO ENSURE SHELF LIFE AND MAINTAIN QUALITY OF PRODUCT 1) Proper temperature control is critical to maintaining quality of herring. Keep between 33-40 F. 2) Herring is a ready-to-eat product. It has been cold cured. Do not cook or heat. 3) Product cannot be heated, thawed, or microwaved. 4) Do not freeze. 5) Do not let product sit out. Sitting at room temperature will soften fish and affect quality. 6) Be sure to rotate product. Time, temperature, and light destroy the quality of herring (soft fish.) 7) Do not mix or over-stir herring products. 8) Keep proper brine level. Fish should be covered completely by brine. Excess brine should be poured off; you want fish packed tight with brine a couple inches over the top.
