I serched on the site for Blueberry Pierogi's and couldn't find one - does anyone know how to make them. I would love to make them for my Husband. Also does anyone know if you can freeze the dough and than thaw before needed? Thanks, Donna

i just mix blueberries with sugar in a bawl and live it for a couple of hours...
that's it, very easy...
i don't freeze the dough, i like it fresh and like a play dough...

I would think that you just put blueberries inside.

This had to be started after the last of this year's crop of home grown Blueberries has been finished.
I am considering buying a second bush to balance out my garden plan.
Nothing to do with eating, of course.

don't freeze the dough

Unless you buy some sort of frozen dough, why freeze it?

We make around 800 to 1000 (which is probably not many to some of you), but I thought if I make the dough ahead, we could move quicker making the pierogi's instead of having to wait while I make the dough when needed.

I just was wondering if you used blueberry pie filling or fresh blueberries and added something.

I really like the polish style salads (surowka I think) like white cabbage, beetroot, carrot etc, I've tried making them at home but there's something missing. I've been told to make the dressing with oil, vinegar and sugar, does anyone know where I'm going wrong please?

Blueberry Pierogi's

Hey there, sorry I put my question about salads on your thread, I'll get used to the system eventually!

To make the filling, my mom uses fresh blueberries and sugar. She keeps the blueberries whole and uses 75% of the amount of blueberries to be the amount of sugar she uses. And then she simply rolls the dough, cuts out circles, and wraps the pierogies. They are insanely good!

I just add sugar to the tops of the fresh blueberries. Never tried freezing the dough, but wouldn't want to do that. Rather work with fresh products to guarantee great quality!

We actually freeze the fresh blueberries...when we are ready to make pierogi, we take the blueberries from the freezer, sprinkle them with sugar and put them in the pierogi. If you do this while they are still frozen , you do not get all the juices all over the place - and it is easier to pinch the pierogi since the dough sticks better when it is not wet from the blueberry juice.

I love blueberry pierogi this time of year, served with metled butter or sweet cream or confectioner's sugar and sour cream, but the ones we get in the States cannot compare with the Old World variety. Those are made with wild berries (czarna jagoda, czernica) which are much smaller than the American blueberries but less watery and more favourful. Anyone agree or disagree?

Anybody recall seeing li'l old babcias selling the jagody they've picked in a forest at Polish roadsides?

I remember in Warsaw once a lady was walking by the blocks yelling and selling "jagody! jagody! jagody!" and people would go and buy from her. You can make blueberry pie, blueberry waffles, blueberry muffins, blueberry yogurt, blueberry icecream, then you wonder why you have blueberry poop. Just like here in Wisconsin we have all these AYCE corn roasts where it's grilled or boiled then the toilets get plugged with corn poop.

I agree that polonius3 often sounds .... out of date, but he does have a point here. For my money on the whole fresh fruit grown and sold in Poland is better than any of the overprocessed and bland fruit I've had in the US. I just had some black cherries bought on the sidewalk of Warsaw that were amazing.

I'm just surprised that Polish people are so into blueberries (too papery and harsh around the edges for me) and not as fond of blackberries (jerzyny) as I am.

Louicky-That is a brilliant idea about the frozen berries. I have terrible problems sealing up the fruit pierogi. For meat pierogi, I make something like little meatballs (pre-cooked) and I find it much easier to get the pierogi sealed. Next time, I will try your idea.

Here is a suggestion on keeping the berries from running :

Wash, drain, and drip dry 1 pt. blueberries. Some cooks sprinkle the
blueberries with sugar before filling pierogi, but that makes the filling quite runny. We feel it is better to fill them with just the blueberries and then sprinkle the cooked pierogi with powered or granulated sugar on serving platter. This is a great summertime favorite, the more so that the small wild blueberries found in Poland's forests are far tastier than the commercially grown variety available in America. Note: Your blueberry pierogi will be less runny if you sprinkle the berries with 1-2 T. flour or potato starch.
