Kaszanka – Polish black pudding fried with onion

Polish Kaszanka is a sausage made of pig’s blood and groats (buckwheat or barley). Sometimes pig’s liver is added, depending on the region. It’s traditional polish food. Originally it was a dish prepared after pigsticking, to use all the parts of the pig. It has quite high levels of fat and cholesterol, but at the same time it supplements iron and zinc. Use it cautiously and enjoy Kaszanka:)

Kaszanka can be served cold, grilled or fried on the pan.

Paprykarz

In Poland during PRL you could buy Paprykarz Szczeciński, which was low quality fish spread with rice. You could take it with you for camping or holidays abroad:) Bulgaria was popular destination in 1980ties, because of the fact that Poland and Bulgaria were under the same communistic regime and there were restrictions on traveling to Western Europe.

You can still buy Paprykarz in stores, which looks a little bit better if you check ingredients, but I invite you to prepare it yourself at home:)

Polish pancakes/ Naleśniki

Polish pancakes is my children’s’ top choice for supper. They like it served with maple syrup or simply with sugar powder. It is 15 minutes to have it on a plate. Try!

I like spelt flour, as it is less modified compared to usual wheat flour. We don’t use flour so much, so I prefer to spend more on a good quality product for my children, without home budget crisis;)

I also like ‘Krupczatka’ flour which is a wheat flour not so much grounded.
