I was in the Baltimore area today, so I managed to get some Ostrowski's kielbasa. Yum!

Chris, you need to have some perogies to go along with the fresh kielbasa. If you come to WNY try these...https://babciaspierogi.com

We have perogies every Xmas season.  The potato and cheese ones are awesome but the sauerkraut ones are wonderful also.  In Wisconsin,  Kielbasa is always a year round staple.

Gentlemen, please stop...your making me hungry.  Hungry enough to brave traffic and empty the bank account at the local shrine to all things Polish.

My Grandma and I used to make sausage along the lines of kielbasa. We raised our own hogs and grew Cayenne peppers for the hot stuff. Wiping the sweat off your forehead with your pepper pitching hand was a mistake you made only once.

She was the famous Bob Evans mother's cousin. That guy went from being a dirt farmer to being a multi-millionaire by cornering the hog market in a three state area. He actually wore those silly cowboy hats you see on the company logos. When the Evans'
sold their controlling interest in the restaurants a decade or so back, they became a place to avoid. The farm museum is still a nice place to visit.

A few amazing but true coincidences, here goes:

1). My mother's side of the family were Polish Coal Miners from the Anthracite region of central Pennsylvania.  I was born on the lower east side of New York City bordering Eastern European and Italian immigrant/first generation communities.  We took our Easter Basket filled with the makings of a Polish Easter Breakfast to be blessed at the neighborhood Polish Church annually - kielbasa prominently featured.  Mother's maiden name Podchajski - Americanized to Podhayski

2) My older son is currently vacationing by visiting the Polish Christmas markets; I'm getting a daily Pierogi consumption count from Krakow, Warsaw, and Gdansk.

3) Tuesday, I canned up 7 quarts of sauerkraut (my secret ingredient is caraway seed), from 15 pounds of of cabbage, which fermented in my front hallway for six weeks.

Now, pass the horseradish  ;)!

PS - Very clever, JFarley - touche!      Traveling Wave - I do applesauce, too.  You are right about the accompaniment.

I love sauerkraut! I have trouble finding good ones since I don't make it myself. Wanna ship a jar of yours up to me? :D


We just lost a good Polish market/restaurant up here. I think the lady who ran it got too old but her cooking was fabulous. I'll miss it.
