Yeah I noticed fruits (except for apples) can be a bit pricey in the supermarket. Thankfully the babcia always provides food so I'll never go hungry. But if I don't want to hear about not being married yet and other complaints I'll have to dole out the cash to eat out or buy food.

Most of the fruit and probably vegetables in the USA is imported from Mexico. Some things are grown locally but the market seems to dictate that importing much fruit and vegetables is more efficient

Prices of lots of fruit and veg are going up sharply - a dry summer but also high fuel costs, closed sundays, the proposed retail taxes and higher wages both for fruit pickers and supermarket staff.

If you still have them ( babcia's) love them and respect them, not much time left. I wish my grandparents or parents still live....

Especially that one day we will be grandpas and grandmas and what we give today, we shall get tomorrow.

I am a grandpa but it didn't work out that way for me.
I gave and gave and gave helping out when I was younger and now in my old age I get nothing but a palm up hand and a thanks, see ya next Christmas.

Back on topic however.
I miss my sauerkraut and kielbasa as I have that on my regular diet at least once a week.
Cleans me out naturally.

Jesus man! You were banging on about how food prices in Poland are so low compared with the rest of Europe. Make your bloody mind up!

Note to Mods. This is NOT abuse. The above is jokey British English banter, and our language came first:)

my sauerkraut and kielbasa

Excellent johnny. I'm sure the Krauts stole pickled cabbage from the Poles. On the other hand, Polish sausage is now officially total rubbish (unfortunately I still eat it because it's a vice)

I'm old enough to remember when Polish cold cuts were the best in the world, bar none. Those days are gone for ever, because money talks and curing time is no longer followed, even with the "premium" foods.

As for "parowka" - scientests have linked that to cancer. For God's sake people, avoid that rubbish.

How silly Dougy.
You must not know that pickled cabbage originated in the north of China among the Mongols and was introduced in Europe by migrating tribes.
(we already have had that discussion here if you remember right)
When mixed with Polish kielbasa it becomes a Polish dish.
My Polish grandma said so which trumps an ex-pat Brit residing in Poland.
Before you try to belittle me next time do your homework.

Polish cold cuts were the best in the world, bar none.

Some of them still are here in the U.S.A. if you want to spend the extra money for those that are properly cured, "like in the old days in Poland". lol

delf laughed at me when I said that when I come to Poland I would like to get some of the old recipes in curing Polish sausage properly along with some of the secret spices and tricks used to make it so good.

One of my best friends owns a home butcher shop within a kilometer from my residence and we are always toying around with new recipes come deer season when there is an abundance of meat to experiment with making new kinds of sausages.

scientests have linked that to cancer

Along with bacon and 1001 other foods.
