The "end piece" of a loaf of bread in Polish

"crunka"

In Polish a kromka is any slice of bread, not necessarily the end piece.

@Polonius3
In Polish end piece of bread is "piętka"(a heel) and "kromka" is a slice of bread however in Poznań "kromka" is exactly end piece of bread. Usual "kromka" becomes "pajda" in Poznań. :)

My polish grandparents called it the tutz, guessing the spelling. Also the heel.

Thank you, barbk! I couldn't remember what my Slovak baba and mom called the heel piece and you are right! It was krunka! I can now sleep well tonight. :)

7 years later. My mother and grandmother called it the same thing. Klumpka or klumka. Who knows what other lies I've been living with? :)

My family called it the "Dupka" and even my kids, who don't really speak Polish, still call it that.

Piętka.

No, my darling. :):) Heel is pięta in Polish, while piętka is Little Heel. I am amazed you forgot your mother tongue so thoroughly, :(:(:(:(

And what is "pajda chleba"? Is it a big slice or a part of a loef.

Yes, it is a thick slice cut from the loaf of country bread which is big and round.

Strictly by ear (from my mother) crunka; the end piece nobody liked. And, strictly by ear (from my father) I (and my siblings) we were all "dupa kids". crun-ka
