Does anybody know how to ship pierogi to USA without sending them frozen?

Is there a better way to preserve them?

This may sound a bit dumb but why don't you just make 'em yourself or employ a few Polish Babcias to make 'em! The logistics of shipping fresh pierogi to the States would be nigh on impossible ( I would have thought)

Excuse me... a bit offtop. How do you cook pierogi? I heard it was some like Russian "pelmeni". We throw them frozen to a saucepan and boil for a while.

In Russia they are called VARENIKI..They are the same as Polish and Ukranian.
I just cant understand why people dont make their own.. There plenty recipes on the web.

What can be better than a fresh pierog right out of the boiling water and drained, then fried in butter and onions. UMMMMM!

Oh.. I see, thanks Franek! :) Just if "vareniki" stuffed with a meat we call them "pelmeni"; if the fill is curds, cheese, jam - then "vareniki".

Growing up, I watched my Mom make pierogi with plums..I remember her buying Damson plums or Italian plums..The finished product came out with a purple tint.. But I was told that there was another Polish Plum used... Anybody have any knowledge of this?

You can try to dry them, "suszone pierogi" a new thing on the market. Mmmmm. O.o.
Where you sending them from? I wouldn't want to smell something that was in the mail 2 weeks....Unless of course you want to poison someone with old fart-smelling pierogi...

But I was told that there was another Polish Plum used..

Maybe the were called powidła, which is like plum marmolade?
or śliwki?

You can swallow them in condoms and jump on a plane.
But whatever you do, don't make your own, I believe you can go to prison for that.
