Wigilia is but a month away. Perhaps some of you who cultivate the tradition would like to share the foods you partake of?
In our family it is usually:
* herring in oil
* mayonnaise-laced mixed cooked-vegetable salad
* carp in aspic Jewish style (with raisins)
* clear beetroot barszcz with hand-held batter-fried mushrooms on the side
* fried carp
* stewed sauerkraut with mushrooms and split yellow peas
* noodles & poppyseed
* stewed fruit (dried-fruit compote)

clear beetroot barszcz with mushroom uszka (tortellini)
fish of some kind (I don't like carp)
bigos (hunter's stew)
noodles & poppy seed with honey
stewed fruit (dried-fruit compote)
sauerkraut and mushrooms "burgers"
sauerkraut pierogi
kutia
pastry

The Twelve-dish Christmas Eve supper tradition does not allow mean or alcohol of any kind at the Wigilia dinner, until midnight.
