Really? I thought Russian mustard is the strongest of all

I have never heard of or even tasted Russian mustard.
So you may be right.

Stronger than Polish or French mustard (frankly not strong at all) however not nearly as strong as Colman's. Musztarda rosyjska is usually wholegrain.

I just checked - Russian type has 3 chillis sign on the label and is made from black mustard seeds - without exotic additives.

I used to buy it, if I could find it.

Interestingly I bought some English mustard in the UK (not Colman's) to bring back to PL. When I read the label, it said "Made in Poland".

To tell the truth, I prefer Polish mustard made locally in Krakow, they add honey to it. Having a sweet tooth, I sometimes relish it solo with a teaspoon when my kids and wife have finished off all chocolates, sweets and Nutella at home. :):)

Here is another crypto advertisement of a good product:

That sounds a bit like Süßer Senf. I've had it, but wouldn't know what to serve it with.

eeeeeeeeeek

Yes, I know, but I can`t resist, it is so tasty. :):)

but wouldn't know what to serve it with.

I use it on home-made hot dogs. My sweet doggies... :)

Süßer Senf. Sweet mustard. Probably equally delicious. :)

Is this sour?

Yes, it is because they always add vinegar or citric acid to mustard. Any mustard.

Polish sausage is my fav. Fried is the best. Here with onion.

The sausage, onion and bread look great!
Shame about the pineapple........should be an ogorki.....

Sausage with pineapple, Pawian?

I told you I have a sweet tooth! As far as I remember, we ran out of my fav honey mustard then, so I used the pineapple because that sweet dark beer wasn`t enough. What, do you expect me to have sprinkled that sausage with sugar? :):):)

Shame about the pineapple........should be an ogorki....

Yes, I sometimes have crazy tastes,. Whenever my poor wife saw such stuff, she used to go out of the kitchen. :):) Now she is accustomed.

Guys, the truth is simple - pineapple was to counterbalance that unhealthy piece of meat. :):)

I actually like the idea though! I'm going to test it tomorrow, because that combination actually sounds quite tasty, especially with well done onions on top.

Mmm, I would like to try that......

Sausage with pineapple

It does sound a bit of an odd combo, but then I've always thought the same about gammon and pineapple eaten in the UK.

Recently sampled some wedliny at a Polish fair here in New Jersey!

Sorry to have to tell you this Lyzko... Polish "wedliny" results in at least 20 percent higher incidences of bowel cancer. Now, having first hand experience of that, I would not wish that on my worst enemy (a tad trite, as all our love ones die of something..)

Religious holidays - OK... but knowing what I know now - no processed pork otherwise for my family thanks very much.

Lyzko...

Actually Lyzko - I bow to superior intellect. Carry on regardless, as you are still young. One of Britain's' kitchen sink drama longest lasting cast members (she is 92) has this to say about being careful what you eat post a certain age....she suggests to just carry on (because after all, some Polish cold cuts are justifiably world-class...a "whole" Sopocka - akin to a whole animal - being my favourite in past times...)

Doug,

If I want to eat "healthy", I'll nibble on some lonely celery stalks, maybe a carrot! If I want to eat elegantly, I'll dine on

a meal at France's best kept secret, La Pyramide, once I can afford itLOL....and if I want to eat WELL, I'll continue

stuffing my face with all the wedliny, kielbasy, czerwona kapusta and nice, crispy placki ziemiaczne I can possibly
(and legally) get my hands on, thank you!!

I am sad to hear that you suffered bowel cancer Doug,one of my uncles had it,he too ate a lot of cured meats.

But I and many people I know have eaten it almost daily with no ill effect.
Whilst I am sure the stats are right, if we did everything the doctors tell us, life would be very boring....
We all gotta go one day...the best thing is to do everything you want in moderation, I am sure that a contended life increases longevity.

Are you aware that lung cancer amongst non smokers is on the increase?
Sometimes, doing all the right things doesn't save you.

Actually, that pineapple wasn` t a joke. I sometimes eat fresh pineapple with fatty meat dishes because the fruit contains beneficial bromelain which helps in better digestion of protein.

Yes, but Lyzko and me simply can`t resist.

Let` relive those wonderful moments again. As Milo said, life would be so boring without them.

Yes, exactly, but as Dougpol mentioned, it is all processed and cured pork. . The non-cured one is available but not too popular.

Sorry to disabuse you Milo. It was my mum I was referring to. I would have swapped places with her if I could - but of course anybody would think the same. There's no good way to lose that person who brought you into this world.

PS That's why I love Easter so much. It's like a rebirth; whereas catholics have All Souls Day, I prefer to celebrate my parents' memory at Easter. Garden and sun, and all that.

We already talked about flaki/tripes here, what about other giblets? Once I fancied chicken liver and used to eat it twice/thrice a month, but I haven`t had it for about three years now.

Nothing wrong with chicken livers.
Very tasty and probably quite healthy too.
OP pawian 161 | 9,846

Of course, nothing wrong. But I must have acquired a new taste and that is why I gave chicken liver up. An old Polish wives` tale says/ said that people change their tastes every 7 years.
Miloslaw 6 | 2,150

Not sure about every 7 years, but certainly, your tastes do change from a very early age.
I love things now that I used to hate and vice versa.
As a side note, Brazilian BBQ restaurants do some great cuts of meat, chicken livers and hearts are amongst them.

Chicken liver only with surówka z kiszonej kapusty.
