Varenyky. Sort of like pierogi but should have slightly thinner dough. These freeze well, so depending on the supplier (or if they're made in-house), they could be really tasty. Cook like a potsicker, boil, or fry in butter. The best savory ones are filled w/sweet cabbage. Never seen the fresh-fruit dessert variety for sale at a store, at least not frozen.

Kvas. Fermented rye beverage somewhere btw. birch beer and real beer. Commercial brands are often way too sweet (you typically want to buy this off the street, out of a tank) so maybe water down the grocery-store version w/seltzer or use in a cocktail. Tastes like a malty, rooty soda. On its own, the alcohol is low enough for it be be sold in the soft drink aisle, probably less kick than even kombucha.

Salo. Fat from the back of a pig, sometimes mixed w/belly fat. Cured in salt, and occasionally lightly smoked. Basically quite similar to Italian lardo. Really good when sliced razor thin and allowed to melt on rye bread, w/some barely pickled cucumbers, a picked tomato, and a shot of horilka or vodka to wash it down. Oh, shit. Good times. It's also great fried, after being diced into tiny cubes, as a garnish atop savory varenyky. You can sometimes find salo whipped w/garlic and salt into what looks like a snow-white ball of pig-fat butter. You should spread this on everything should you ever encounter it.

Girls.

My wife is Polish/Lithuanian. Most people like her and ask her why she married me, but she is not for sale.


I'm quarter Polish/Lithuanian thanks to Grandpa Constant (nee Konstanynowicz) who passed way before I was born...I'm giving side eye hard....

Personally, I've found Polish marketplaces good for smoked meats, mustards, and ingredients to make borscht and slaws.
You guys don't mind that I crash your little sausage party, right?

they have these on the Polish foods aisle in our local supermarket and they're super delish.

Sound like Pim's cookies are the US version of Jaffa Cakes.

Those are exactly the ones I meant. Easy to eat. They're cheap, too.

It's a sweet bread that has swirls in it.


This stuff is so good. Family back home in PA sends me a big ol' loaf of it every Christmas.
