Fresh Sour Pickles
Spicy Lithuanian Vodka
|Cooking my way through From a Polish Country House Kitchen|
I can’t say that we’ve been having stew weather, but I wanted to try one of the game recipes. The cookbook has three recipes for venison, and the combination of ingredients for the stew sounded so intriguing. We have a little shop in Poznan that specializes in game meats, so I was happy to see they had the deer shoulder called for in the recipe.
|Fresh sour pickles – preserved in brine, I can now really claim the name of my other blog, Polish Housewife. Little cukes are souring on kitchen counters all over Poland right now.|
|In the introduction, Anne Applebaum mentions the cookbooks that inspired and served as reference. I was happy to see that I have the book she mentioned in relation to the several flavored vodkas – The Big Book of Tinctures!|
Like bake-alongs I’ve done in the past, I’m not posting the recipes in From a Polish Country House Kitchen, but if you’d like your own copy, it’s available on Amazon.
