We mentioned them in April

I obviously missed them, but I'm not sure I would bother making them, they don't really appeal to me.

Down with discriminatory food names!!!!

But for balance there are queen scallops :) I've never seen them in Poland though:

Of course, Brits don`t like sauerkraut - it looks and smells rotten to them.

They've sold it in the UK for many years. Jars of Krakus sauerkraut always used to be in the shops. Personally I can't abide it.

Yes, of course. But selling sth doesn`t mean it is popular. :)

ars of Krakus sauerkraut always used to be in the shops.

For Brits of Polish origin or native Poles - RAF squadrons airmen, Anders` Army, etc.

For anybody probably. Most larger food shops and some smaller ones in my home town stocked Polish products, sauerkraut, gherkins, jam, tinned meat.

Plenty of Poles and Ukrainians there (who came after the war) however as I remember there were some many things from Poland that others must have bought them too. We always had Polish products at home, especially gherkins and jam but also sauerkraut sometimes. They started to disappear from the shops after Chernobyl due to consumer reluctance and when the UK joined the single market in 1990 pretty well vanished completely.

I am sure we talked about tongues/ozory about two weeks ago. But I can`t find the discussion in which most people were disgusted. Including maf.

So, maf, if you cook ozory properly, they don`t remind you of flaki. They are pure meat, have a look. In the dish below, I boiled them and then fried them in batter. They were crispy but soft inside. Delicious.

I was okay with the taste and I've even had ozory a time or two since.... it was the _texture_ the feeling of biting into a tongue that grossed me out. Imagine you've been at the dentist and your whole mouth is numb and you bite your tongue but don't feel pain - that's what it was like. Once I cut it into teeny tiny pieces it was okay.
