On his Kaeskoppenstad visroker Jan Janszoon and his mates every year present to mackerel to smoke. They are more than two days working on the mackerel ready for visitors Kaeskoppenstad and yet they do this voluntarily! So it was about time to visrokers more under the spotlight. Jan Janszoon told us he was 40 years ago began to smoke fish. Just for fun. Together with his neighbors and family as he sat on the beach with a tasty smoked small fish surfboard and a beer in hand. The mackerel they caught them by boat or surfboard. From the side they could easily see where the fish surfboard were, because the gulls dived into the smelt. They knew that the mackerel was underneath and on the same smelt preyed. Once they caught mackerel in their surfing sail had smoked it that or they put the fish surfboard in the acid . . For visitors to Kaeskoppenstad are unfortunately not in Sails caught mackerel, but the fish surfboard in January Janszoon now uses his friends purchased through Scheveningen. This year, the jacks 160, 250 and 25 Brado New Holland's (on mats smoked herring). A lot of fish surfboard and therefore takes much time to prepare for Kaeskoppenstad. Thursday they played with start picking up fish from Scheveningen. Friday make them clean the mackerel, which means that the intestines and gills are removed and they have been cleaned properly. They are then salted mackerel in 1930 by about one pound of salt to make . . Saturday, the first day of Kaeskoppenstad, they are asked in order to wash the mackerel and threading pins. This allows the skin to dry, so the smoke sticks to the skin. Around 10. 00 hours to leave the visrokers Alkmaar ancient fish surfboard stalls, where in the sixteenth century, fish surfboard was sold. Here they lighted a fire in the smoking oven to the mackerel on top to dry further. Even after they put out the moth and leave the fish surfboard smoking three hours long at a temperature of around 50 degrees. As befits good cooks, taste them himself smoked mackerel. When they are satisfied, they remove the bones and lay the fish surfboard on bread with some mayonnaise, onions, cucumber and lettuce. Now they are ready to sell! Of course, the stakes are also available and can cut the visitors enjoy Kaeskoppenstad Brado's thinly sliced. This is far too much work for Jan Janszoon alone. Hence, each year a number visrokers entails. The only man at his side and called Corneel viswijven are Knier, Macheltje, Aaltje, chat, Martha and Train. Usually they came with three men and seven viswijven, but this year sadly diminished. Hence the visrokers urgently seeking a man who some of mackerel or herring cut smoking knows . . Would you as a visitor of Kaeskoppenstad also a nice smoked mackerel or herring buy the visrokers? Jan Janszoon is certainly fun when you come to Alkmaar fish surfboard stalls on the corner of Mient and Verdronkenoord. But be quick, because after two days all fish surfboard is usually sold out!
