You can easily make a delicious rollmop yourself without preservatives.
(green = fresh, not pickled)
medium hot mustard
Sugar, amount to taste
Boil water, vinegar, a little salt, sugar and bay leaves to a broth. Let this cool down completely. It must be really cold, not lukewarm.
Debone the pegs, cut off the head, thoroughly clean and wash. Pat lightly dry with kitchen towels. Unfold the fish pieces and lightly salt.
Spread the mustard mixture, onions and cucumber on the fish and roll them together like a roulade. Fix the end with wooden sticks.
Layer the rolls in a lockable container, e.g. a glass. Pour the spice stock over so that all parts are covered.
Let it stand in a cool place for 4 to 5 days.
