    Here's Elmer Sprick's "Pickled Sucker" recipe featured in "Savoring the Suckers" Show #291: Fillet 5-6 quarts of sucker fillets, freeze them at 0 degrees for 48 hours. After 48 hours, thaw the fillets and cut them into bite-size chunks. Put them in a large crock or plastic pail and cover them with a solution of 2 quarts of dark vinegar, 2 1/2 cups of pickling salt, and let stand for six days, stirring them daily. After six days, rinse the chunked fillets in fresh water. Next, make a pickling solution of 2 quarts of white vinegar, 7 cups of sugar, add 1 1/2 ounces of pickling spices, 1/2 teaspoon of crush red peppers, 1 spoon of cooking oil, two finely sliced lemons and heat this mixture to a boil. After the solution cools, add 2 pounds of finely sliced white onions. and pour it over the fish chunks. Refrigerate and let stand for four days. After four days, put the chunks into jars with rust-proof non-leaking lids, add some of the pickling solution containing onions and lemons and keep the sealed containers refrigerated until ready to serve.
