It’s the Holidays, and it just wouldn’t seem the same during Christmas if this part Polish girl didn’t celebrate it by enjoying homemade Polish pierogi!
Homemade Polish Pierogi
I was in a tailspin because our local grocery store had stopped carrying the Andrulis brand of hard Farmer’s Cheese. So yesterday we drove to New Britain, Connecticut and stopped at the local Polish grocery stores. I was able to pick up another type of block of imported old European style Farmer’s Cheese (also known as Mother’s cheese). I’m certain will be equally delicious in these homemade pierogi.
On Easter, Polish Kielbasa with hard-boiled eggs is also a must, so a trip to New Britain for authentic Martin Rosol’s Easter Kielbasa is always on the agenda too.

Even though it was Sunday, some of the local Delicatessen (Delikatesy) and Polish specialty food grocery stores were open until the early afternoon, which surprised me, as the Polish community is deeply religious.
Learning to make Polish pierogi isn’t really difficult, just time consuming, but well worth your time once you learn to perfect the technique.
