  3. Mix the sultanas with the jam, mustard, soy sauce, oil and gingerbread spice.
  4. Slice the onion into feathers.
  5. Place the herring on a platter or in a jar, pour the spicy marinade and the sliced onion with bay leaf and allspice over them.
  6. Cover the whole thing and place in the fridge for a few hours.
