I live in Northwest Indiana, a large Polish community and in stores they sell this sausage simply called "Polish sausage." It looks like Bratwurst and has a similar texture, but tastes way better (In my opinion.) It contains various spices and seasoning including garlic.
Anyway, my dad travels a lot and says he can't find Polish sausage anywhere else he goes. When he visits his sister he has to bring some down with him in a cooler because she misses it so much. It is even sold in the chain grocery stores around here like Kroger, but isn't sold in Krogers in other areas.
I know that the term kielbasa is a really vague term meaning really just any kind of Polish sausage, so I want the specific name of this particular type of sausage. Anyone know?
I've included a picture. This is what it looks like cooked. It is a pale color when it is uncooked... like a brat, actually.
