spinache. YUK. Another food I have never eaten
The problem in Poland is that traditional ways of making spinach are kind of... meh,with frozen spinch I get the oil very hot and drop in kminek (so it pops in the heat) let it cool a bit before adding some flour and then add the spinch (adding the flour to the oil prevents it from clumping)
I use to like raw spinach salad (very good with the right dressing - I like pan drippings from fried meat drizzled over it).
Pickled, you mean?
Yeah, they pickle the whole cabbage (to mimic the flavor of grape leaves since gołąbki are in essense a northern version of dolma) I just about passed out once going past a stand selling the pickled whole cabbage in Bucharest... in Bulgaria and Romania they're also small (again like dolma)
in Hungary they don't pickle the cabbage but they do sauerkraut while baking and some of that is absorbed into the gołąbki, which are yuuuge - half again as big as in Poland...
