No, fuzzy, throwing salt over your shoulder drives the ghosts away who are looking over it to count each grain of salt and might possibly bring you death. Lol I read that once on origins of folk superstitions. Also, why you are supposed to cover your mouth while yawning so ghosts counting your teeth don't fall in, and some others.

I have to say, I will have to try the kidney recipe. I tried it once. Oh my good lord was the experience... Memorable ;) If you want, I can share link tomorrow since I blogged about it. I might have scarred my kids with the kidneys debacle. Good times. Lol

There you go, my kidney experience ;) Hope you enjoy.

You chopped up and ate that big mushroom you found didn't you Pawian.

Sometimes I don't feel at all Polish, because I can't pick wild mushrooms safely. It's like being a tone-deaf Welshman who can't play rugby, lol.

This particular mushroom, Lactarius deliciosus, commonly known as the Saffron milk cap, Red pine mushroom, or rydz in Polish is fantastic when consumed in two basic forms: just fried (as shown in preparation in Pawian picture) and "the whole caps dipped in batter, then fried". Both are excellent. However, "rydz" is not that good for marination, or for stews.

I am Polish .. or Upper Silesian .. or I dont know .. some ancestors are from Ukraina, Russia, France, Germany and Catalonia(?? we dont know sure) ... and the brother of my great-grandmother married a French woman and they adopted an African child, so I am somehow connected with Africa. But I was born in Germany and live here, so I will answer about Polish food.

I only like barszcz czerwony and pierogi .. ptasie mleczko and karp at Christmas .. and these all stuff is only tasty in winter!

I am more into Italian food!! Best food ever!

when on holidays in the mountains, we order only traditional Polish foods.
Breakfasts are abundant to give you energy for the day:

Looks a bit boring, to be frank. I've just come back from Tykocin. At the newly rebuilt castle I ate rack of lamb, boiled potatoes and rocket salad with halumi and balsamic vinegar. 50PLN. Highly recommended. We were actually staying at Kiermusy, but the food there does not deserve its reputation. To be fair the accommodation was fine, but I've had better food in milk bars.

Come on, if you expected some cosmic food, you were wrong. :):):):)

We were in the countryside which, traditionally in that area, has had modest culinary customs for centuries, due to various reasons. We go there every year to get this food because I am tired of fancy stuff I have in Krakow.

I've just come back from Tykocin. At the newly rebuilt castle I ate rack of lamb, boiled potatoes and rocket salad with halumi and balsamic vinegar. 50PLN.

To be honest, in our village we paid 50 zlotys per person/day for accomodation and three meals.

Rybnik, today I set 6 big jars of beets. To quicken the fermentation, I used butter milk instead of rye bread. And I put less beet into jars to avoid the syrup-like liquid which is not my taste after all. Mineral water adds healthy minerals.

Being shopping today, I again wasn`t able to resist the overwhelming temptation:

When I see smoked fish, I get crazy.

That`s my today`s supermarket bounty.

What can you see?

Yes, sprats! I love them. I rip off the head, bite of the belly (soft intestines, yuk) and then shred the whole fish with my teeth, millimeter after millimiter, leaving the tail.

I especially like those big ones, sardine size.

ick. I used to buy fresh ones for my cat as a rare treat. The Polish ones are nice with bread, gherkins and vodka.

I prefer tinned sardines with vodka. Old Soviet secret services` advice for agents who participate in drinking parties - eat two tins of sardines and you can go, drink without limitations and still stay sober.

Anchovies are a bit the same - something to do with the salt and minerals.

What are pilchards called in Poland? I don't remember ever seeing them, but they would fit well with the cuisine.

I had some of this in the pub recently:

Cod jerky (much nicer than you might imagine).

Basically, dried cod. Just cod that's been salted, cut into long thin strips and dried.

All I know is, I don't eat anything pickled or anything that swims. Almost anything else I would eat.

No. The closest comparison is with calamari/squid. Almost the same type of meat structure - rubbery, resistant to teeth.

Except that one is sea food and the other - vile pig intestines.

Of course, sources differ.

But I wouldn`t call it vile - after all, recall what your Scottish/British compatriots eat with/in their beloved dish on great Scottish celebrations- do you ever call it vile in their presence?
