Old Fashioned Kielbasa and Kraut
This is comfort food to me. My family makes about 100 pounds of fresh kielbasa every December, we share it and freeze it so we can enjoy throughout the year. If you can not find fresh kielbasa near you it can purchased at the Kowlaski site. It is very close to what we make at home. There are many ways to prepare it, crockpot, smoked, plain roasted in the oven but this is my all time favorite. The combination of kraut and kielbasa takes me back to memories of Christmas dinner every time. We make homemade pierogis in December that are usually enjoyed with this but those are long gone by the time summer rolls around. The combination of the pork and kraut are good enough on their own. It is scoffed at by purists that I love the horseradish cream sauce as opposed to the fresh prepared kind but to each their own. This Woeber’s Horseradish Sauce is the best, it has a serious kick. I have a few converts in my family even if they wont admit it. What are some classics dishes that remind you of your childhood and growing up? Let me know in the comments!
