Early spring is the only time in the year when you can obtain fresh bear’s garlic (also called ramps or wild leek). In Poland it is a perfect time for it right now. Last year I made delicious Pesto, from this year’s batch I decided to make a bread spread: Bear’s Garlic Cream Cheese and a Bear’s Garlic Soup, which recipe is coming up soon. Stay alert not to miss my next recipe;) You can for example subscribe to my newsletter or follow me on Facebook or Instagram. Maybe you prefer Pinterest?

Few days ago I prepared Homemade Polish 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:)

Mackerel is a taste of my childhood. During communism in Poland there was a shortage of food and almost no choice in stores. Now there is a whole variety of fish species to choose from, but mackerel is still the most popular smoked fish in Poland. My Grandma used to prepare Smoked Mackerel Bread Spread for us on Fridays, because we didn’t eat meat then.
If you like mackerel, try another bread spread: Homemade Paprykarz Szczeciński.Continue reading “Smoked Mackerel Bread Spread”
