Polish food in the world


Really? It just so happens I am in the process this evening of stuffing about 15 lbs of kielbasa to be smoked tomorrow. I really love the food of my ancestors.

If I was to take a day trip in search of some, where would you recommend? Bonus points if they have czernina. I have some cousins from Poland coming to visit in June and they would enjoy a side trip like that.

I KNOW your kitty does not eat kielbasa! I'll save some moose 'parts' to add to the mix. It's less ethnic, but still wholesome!
Did we even mention the American Indians..............oh well, that is another topic for later. :shock: :roll:

Ohhhhhh, you don't know my Smudge. She's been busy hunting my leavings off the floor.

I bet moose jjerkyy- would be fun to make - send me some and I'll cure and dry it and send some of it back. I make really good je rk y..

Someday I am going to quit my job and get into the charcuterie business.

--Edit: How weird that j e r k y is on the censored list.


--------------edit by Richard-----------

The original word censor list was massive and I have removed much of it because it was very broad, that particular one was a wildcard and would match any word that started with jerk*.. so I'm sure you get the picture. In any event it's been removed from the list. If you come across any others that seem to be odd let me know. You can always turn the word censor off in your control panel.

Kilebasi is king in this area, it's available fresh or smoked from many locally owned butchers and stores, You might want to start at the "Kilebasi Fest". The local churches have bazaars every year and that is the best place to pick up homemade pierogi's. If you're coming up this way I can direct you to a few different places.



Personally me and my buddies have done our own in the past, this is venison kielbasi mixed about 75%pork / 25%venison . It's little dry but the venison gives it a nice flavor. The one guy likes it dry like that and mixes it 50/50.

I like venison kielbasi as well. My Elk brother is a big volume meat processer in Indiana County PA. (Cunningham Meats) he has been winning a lot of Titles and Trophies in cook offs etc. (Lots of Polish in Western PA) My church has keilbasi and pierogie festivels as well. The bazzars here are pretty good with big turns outs. My wife and I just had a baby boy in October :D :) . She is Polish and Czeck and I am Italian and German. God Help us!!!!! :lol: :D :P

Don`t even say those words, I`ve been trying to loose weight. The Pittsburgh area where I was from is famous for all the different ethnic foods, Mckeesport still has a yearly festival where you can try everything.

I've driven by there a million times on 78. I always mean to stop but never seem to. I guess the next coal run will be a kielbasa coal run.
