Yes, sauerkraut carrot salad is OK, though I prefer green salads with more ingredients.

Once I fancied chicken liver and used to eat it twice/thrice a month,

I gave up chicken liver but canned cod liver is still my fav.

What do you think of it? It is fatty and so soft it melts on your tongue.

No, it is nothing, I am going to make it really disgusting soon.

cod liver

Can you buy it in Poland? How is it called 'watroba z dorsza' ?

Of course it is available. But only canned - doesn` t matter to me, even better because it is fatter.
Cod livers in natural fat

Thinking about it- they are probably quite healthy. There are cod liver tablets.

Not sure that Cod livers are particularly Polish.
But they are good for you.

What do you think ancient Poles did with livers when they ate cod?

They are eaten in Poland today and quite popular, there are many recipes online, that`s enough.

Thinking about it- they are probably quite healthy.

I hope so.

"Tran" has been much used for a long time in PL.

What I meant was that they are not especially Polish.
As in eaten by so many other people.

Milo, is it your way of joking by adopting that ignorant simpleton`s attitude? :):) Because I am at a loss whether I should follow the style and go on joking with you or should I remain serious and explain basic things to you? Tell me. :):)

I can't help it if you don't understand what I say.

OK, let me tell you what I understood. I understood you doubt if talking about fish liver here is appropriate as it seems to you it isn`t purely Polish food because it is eaten by so many people in the world.

Following this logic, you could say the same thing about pierogis because they are also eaten all over the world. Also, hundreds of other foods and dishes.

If it was correct understanding of mine, you should change your point of view because it is simply wrong and I hope you understand it now. :):)

To be honest certain food can be regional plus on-off fashion in different times. So I would not generalize.

I remember there was always available to buy chicken liver, hearts, 'zoladki' not sure how it even translate. ( stomach ,craw?) but my dad told me about eating lungs when he was young. I don't remember ever eating them or seeing in the butchers?

It is the same with cod liver- It can be quite fashionable now ....not sure it was in the past.

No you can't.
Pierogis are Polish.
Cod livers are not.
Here endeth the message.

Pierogis are Polish.

Raviolis are Italian and big raviolis look like pierogi....:-)

Pierogis are Polish. Cod livers are not.

But your previous suggestion that cod liver isn`t Polish food was based on its popularity in the world. I pointed to another popular dish - pierogis - so why do you suddenly claim one is Polish and the other not if they are both popular? :):)

Milo, you weren`t joking, right? I hope you run your business with a better understanding of life and things around you than in this thread. :)

me about eating lungs when he was young. I don't remember ever eating them or seeing in the butchers?

I saw them in the hypermarket today but I never eat that stuff- so I bought kidneys and tongues, both pig.

Haddock livers look like Cod livers..... :-)

so why do you suddenly claim one is Poljsh and the other not? :):

Because that is quite simply the case :-)
Enough already.

Maybe coming back- yes tongues I remember too. Kidneys? I don't remember them at all. What do you do with them? In England they do steak-kidney pie.....but in Poland??

Odd, is bread Polish? Potatoes?

I used to lurve cod livers, but haven't had any in years... now I'm hungry...
Miloslaw 6 | 2,030

I don't really want to continue this daft thread,but Maf, you coaxed me into it.....
Bread is Polish if it is Polish bread.
Potatoes are never Polish.
Unless they are very boringly boiled and served with a sprinkling of dill on them.....

Bread is Polish if it is Polish bread. Potatoes are never Polish.

This logic reminds me that if auntie had balls, she would be your uncle. :):)

I don't really want to continue this daft thread,

Stay, we need everybody on our Polish board. :)

Kidneys? I don't remember them at all. What do you do with them?

I usually roast them and then serve with natural gravy. I have tried many times but I haven`t been able to achieve such taste as I remember from our students` uni canteen decades ago. I have dreamt about that taste since then and still cannot recreate it.

I gave up chicken liver

Why? :) I have mine:)



OP pawian 159 | 9,510
10 May 2019  #596
Why?
The last time I had it was in 2015. I don`t know what happened - probably that infamous every-7- year -taste-change took place.

Hah, I know! After many futile attempts to recreate the taste of chicken liver my mum had cooked for us when I was a little boy, I gave up. Sad but seems the most plausible explanation.

I have mine:)

Are you going to eat it on your own or share with family?

@Dougpol1
Now we know where you bought your watrobka; )

@10iwonka10
It's cynaderki.

As for podroby, I just like chicken liver.
Stewed chicken żołądki and serduszka are edible but I can live without them.
I can't remember mum or grandma cook kidneys when I was a kid. Mum once made ozorek but I just hated the look of it.

I never liked galareta or salceson, either.

That is a traditional Polish name for cooked kidneys, lovely.

Mum once made ozorek but I just hated the look of it.

Ozorek means tongue. I find its look funny. And when you cook it long enough, it melts on your tongue.

I make various dishes of it.

Yes! No one but me likes liver:)
Like you, I was brought up on it. I saute it with onions, and al dente cabbage (sadly out of season...) and mashed potato. Lashings of Worcestershire sauce, and there you have a meal made for a king:)

Now we know where you bought your watrobka; )

I found a Biedronka where the staff are extremely pleasant:) :)

I admire your skill in cooking, but...bluuurrgh not for me.
