Kaszotto

Made this today and I love it! I really wasn't sure about it as a couple of friends said they didn't like kasza gryczana, and to be honest, no-one I know cooks with kasza at all. My only experience of it has been the krupnik I had in Poland and that's a different type of kasza. I found the roasted one that you used. Easier to make than risotto but none of the labour intensive stirring. I'll definitely make it again!

I also made the kotlety jajeczne. They were ok but not as nice as I thought they would be. If I make them again i might add some cheese. Also made spinach and leek soup and sernik, so I've had a busy day cooking :)

barley

Smaller and harder grains than the pearl barley back home, however it can certainly be used the same way. Lots of recipes for krupnik, and most of them nice.

There's many, many types of Kasza in Poland/Ukraine/Russia. Kasza Grzyczana is the outlier since it's not a cereal; it's actually a relative of dock leaves.

I thought it might be pearl barley but it's not quite the same. So many different types of kasza. Even semolina is classed as kasza yet it's so different from barley!

For anyone that might be interested, here is some information about the various types of kasza:

culture.pl/en/work/polish-food-101-groats

since it's not a cereal; it's actually a relative of dock leaves.

I knew it wasn't a cereal but didn't know it was related to dock leaves! Bizarre!

Happy about it :) od you want I can throw few morerecipies for different kaszottos your way.

Poles make few kinds depending on how much processing it needs. The one for krupnik is descaled polished(?) And crushed/broken into small pieces.

I really do like kasza gryczana prazona with meat and gravy

Picture is not mine but from this site:

Yes please!

That looks lush, i've got to give it a try.

Is it kasza jęczmienna łamana?

I was certain we had already talked about asparagus in this thread but we didn`t, actually. I am getting old and my memory fails me more and more often. Forgive me if I post sth again.

Asparagus is so yummy. Besides, it goes well with everything - there are dozens of options. The problem is it isn`t fatty and I feel hungry soon afterwards.

It's not very nice. If you're there for any length of time, you need people to bring food in.

I had also thought so until I spent a lot of time in hospital attending a relative of mine. I realised that horrible food served in hospitals was partly a myth. It isn`t so tragic, I would say it matches the standard of meals served in average income households.

What about this:
I almost never see tomatoes without onion in Poland. It's almost as if they were one:

Yes, indeed. Tomato and onion salad has always been popular here. However, when I make myself sandwiches for school brunch/lunch, I use tomato without onion. What about you? Do you eat onion in the morning or during working hours? :):)

Whenever I see this combination, I recall one day when I was young and our housekeeper left and there was nobody to cook for us coz parents worked long hours. So they gave us some money and for a few days we visited milk bars and dined there. I remember it like today that on the first day I fancied tomato and onion salad. I expected the worst coz I had heard bad opinions about milk bars before. yet the stuff on the plate was very appealing - fresh, nicely served, well seasoned. I was really surprised.

I will never forget that salad.

Poles like potatoes a lot, like the Irish. Yes, I eat them from time to time but try to refrain coz my doctor said they are bad for me. Dr Armata, btw. So I prefer kasha or various kinds of rice.

I never use tomato in take away sandwiches. It let's the juices out and losses texture.
I don't mind eating onion in the morning but right after that brush my teeth.

Actually one day when I was short on potatoes and didn't fancy going to the shop I decided to copy you and try some new combo. I must say I prefer it the standard way, with potatoes.

aaa! The immortal combination: meat patties with buckwheat in mushroom sauce. Delicious! :):) Only those French fries are from another dish.

Yes, exactly! That is why I always choose the oldest bread or buns in the container for those sandwiches - I hate wasting food. Zero waste!

I also do it but once I discovered the oniony breath comes back after some time. I saw it in people`s eyes. :):)

Another dish which is fully made by kids - parents don`t deal with it: Of course it isn`t Polish - but it has Polish ingredients!

There are a few dishes that I eat straight from the pan with a wooden spoon.

After an hour, I started to feel hungry again

Yes, it is pleasant for your taste buds but too quick for your digestive system.

I often use a ready made dish as a base coz those bags usually contain appetizing herbs and spices. Later I add more ingredients that I like and voilla! I prepare a dish that I eat for two days. Rarely three.

So you might want to see these pieces. See only coz eating them might be dangerous due to cancer risk.

99% are mine. If they bear the date stamp, they are mine. Some don`t bear it coz I proceessed them and removed the stamp but they are still mine. Why? If you want, you can use them freely - for example, print into a large poster and hang on the kitchen or dining room wall. I have nothing against.

Hey, johnny, do you remember how you told me that eating such stuff as offal is not good for us? You can be right but I can`t resist. I just need to smell the odour and have a taste of pork kidneys or liver from time to time - it is stronger than me. Yes, I am addicted.

Here, kidneys and tongues. When boilt long enough, they are so soft they melt in your mouth.

It is about 6 months now when I discovered black pudding made with buckwheat. I have always liked this grain so now I only buy buckwheat black pudding and have it twice or thrice a month. The side dish is our own potatoes - boiled.

I recommend this one from a known producer:

I like buckwheat kaszanka much better than barley though I don't like it warm... it's already been cooked so I usually eat it cold.

Hungarian blood sausage is very delicious (the best I've had) and also like the blood-liver sausage there (the Polish version doesn't have enough liver for me....)

Cold like from the fridge or room temp? I think too cold isn`t good for the fat content inside - this fat should be heated to dissolve already on your tongue, instead of waiting to reach your stomache. :):)

Boycotting products from RuSSia and Belarus is OK but we mustn`t harm Polish producers who make certain foods in Poland entirely. A good example is Russian Mustard which in fact is Russian STYLE mustard and has nothing in common with the Kremlin.

I like it coz it is very spicy.

RUSSIAN STYLE MUSTARD
Russian mustard has spicy, black mustard seeds which guarantee an intense and strong taste and a unique coarse-grained structure. This is the spiciest mustard from all Prymat mustards that definitely satisfies the delights of the palate of fans of strong culinary tastes.

Polish made "Russian style" mustard is still available in the UK.
