Being half polish. Ok.. maybe "slightly" more than half.. lol. I'm looking for the BEST fresh kielbasa recipe's from my SMF family. I like smoked kielbasa, but I love a true old country pollock fresh kielbasa. Moms parents immigrated from Poland, and Mom told me yrs ago, that the smoked recipe was different from the fresh. However, I cant find any recipes to substantiate what she told me.. When we were kids in Ohio, she used to get fresh kielbasa every spring from a local polish butcher that came from the same village as my grandparents. Loved the taste and texture of that sausage. Would love to get close to that wonderful memory.
