However, I have a jar of sauerkraut in my fridge and I need more ideas of what I can do with it.

Add some beef, sausage, forest mushroom, vegetables (carrot, celery root, onions, anything you've got in your fridge), dried fruit, wine or whatever and cook it altogether until it becomes dark brown.

You Poles think the stork still brought you.........LOL

Of course we do. So do the English, Germans and Dutch.

Don't you? :)

Love thy cabbage as you'd like to be loved yourself

Cabbage is the ubiquitous ingredient of choice. It's so popular that they actually ask you 'without cabbage?' rather than the other way around.

When you buy a cheeseburger here, there's more cabbage than cheese in it.

In the EU, we have butter mountains and wine lakes. What would cabbage be, mounds? Mounds in Polish is kupa which also means sh*t so best not :)

Slipped into oblivion???

see and look for this text:

A teraz przez Was moja kapusta nie rozumie, co do niej mówię, nooby!

Ok, ok, I think I can accept this slang meaning of kapusta if you insist.... :):):)

But, obviously, it isn`t too popular. Probably only in provincial areas....

I know the difference between cabbage and onions!

Are you sure of it? :):):)

I don't insist that you accept on anything.
You insisted that you knew better what my Polish language experience is.

But, obviously, it isn`t too popular. Probably only in provincial areas....

Who cares. The expression functions as I wrote it does.

In Russian we also use word "kapusta" as a slang word for "money" and some do say to kids that they were either found in the kapusta or brought by "aist" (stork).

I wonder if you guys have a in Polish a legend (mostly spreaded among girls) that eating cabbage makes your breast grow?

I haven't heard about that one, but there is a belief that cabbage leaves can be used to alleviate some pain which on occasion is experienced by breastfeeding mothers.

Hmm... While cooking borsch (some like beat soup) I add lots of cabbage in there. :) I didn't notice any fatal consequences.

When I visited Poland it seemed that every meal had three servings of vegetables. Cole slaw, red cabbage, and kapusta were the staples.

Well it's a big part of the diet. Not only here - every old apartent building from Alsace to Irkhutsk has a hallway smelling of boiled cabbage.

But red cabbage, when I cook it here, always goes down really well.

gołąbki- peagons in Polish for some reason;)

BTW: Kapusta in an y form is really good for you, so Polish, Slavs and Germans know what they are doing.

Yes we love cabbage.
It's easy to grow and has myriads of health benefits.
I like it as a side veg, steamed, lately with ginger and soy sauce.
I also make many different simple salads - cole slaws variations, sans mayo.

We badly need our cabbage as there is a demographic downfall in Poland now. As you all know, babies are either found in the cabbage or brought by storks. So we need to grow more and more cabbage to make up for the decreasing number of storks.

my mother makes her own sauerkraut and eats a spoonful every time she gets an indigestion/ sour stomach. Does not make any sense to me but she swears by it!

Yes Cabbage is loved in Poland. And there are many different salads (I don't know their name), some of them are very delicious.

Are there any salty pickles (prepared with salt and vinegar) in Poland ? (cucumber, cabbage). All I tried so far was sweet which I don't like.

every time she gets an indigestion/ sour stomach.

It really helps stomach. Sometimes I eat raw cabbage like a fruit when I have stomach problems.

Sauerkraut has good bacteria responsible for the fermentation process, similar to yoghurt, so there is some sense in it.
