I fry the thing up.
I grab pan, put a bit of oil, turn the fire and fry it. Never boiled it. Might be good that way too.

yeah thats the only way i like it, take off the outer skin and cut into pieces, fry some chopped onions, add kiszka and fry until it falls apart, then add some salt and pepper if you like. kiszka is also called kaszanka.

I forgot about 'kiszka'until you just mentioned it...My Mum and Dad used to fry it in some oil with onions. I remember the first time I saw it cooking, I asked what it was and thought it was horrible. I've never fancied even tasting it but believe it is very tasty.

another good way is to fry some onions and the sausage after you take the casing off and then add a can of pork and beans. it is really good that way.

Something like English black pudding, German Blutwurst or French boudin (a distant relative of Scots haggis), but in Poland preferably made with buckwheat groats. It's called kaszanka in Poland and kiszka in America..

BAKED at 350%until the casing cracks, about 20 minutes.
I like mine with ketchup and raw chopped raw onions,served a good seeded rye bread

postforU     May 25, 2008, 04:18pm  #

I remove the casing and put it in a frying pan (my mom added bacon grease, but if you cook it slowly you don't need to add any grease or oil.) I cook it until it's not quite crispy, but close. I add crumbled bacon to it. Then I take about a tablespoon to two to three eggs all in the same pan. And I serve it with whole wheat toast. This is what my mom used to cook for us when we were little. (I freeze the rest in individual bags or containers.)

I just bought some kiszka yesterday in a local Poltown, it looked like a big bratwurst to me. So I bring it home, throw it on the grill with some onions and guess what... the damn thing fell apart on me! Good thing i was grilling it on tinfoil, so none of the kiszka fell through the grates. I already had some onion choped up with it, so it worked out well. My wife loved it. Are you supposed to cook it loose? If so, why do they sell it in casing?
BTW, I think I remember eating something like this when I was a kid, but I thought that loose stuff like this was called "kaszanka". Or is it all the same?

I was passing through and noticed your posts, slow frying Kiszka can help keep it from spilitting. Packaged Kiszka has been getting nasty, I have learned to make my own, it is fairly easy. I took the recipe from a polish chef and tweaked it. It used to make 20lbs of kizka a bit of overkill, so I scaled it down to one lb.

It is a "liver kiszka" you could substitue a cup or two of beef blood for some of the water that should work fine. I also use minuet rice so it would be hudka technically, if you are handy with barley it would be easy to make it how you like it.

Anyone who would like the recipe please email me at slingweber@aol.com just put kiszka in the title. I will send it to you.

Sziasztok,

Steven :)

hello: My family is from warsaw poland. Kiszka is one of the foods I remember well as a child. My bapcha was the best cook. I now live in North Carolina. I once lived in New Jersey where I grew up. I can not find Kiszka in this state and was wondering if you or anyone had information that would lead me to a polish market here in North Carolina. I miss the foods Bapcha made so bad.

I forgot about this. I went to a polish market in Toledo, Ohio and didn't even think to look for that. I may have to remember that next time we go back. Sure does bring back memories of going to my Busia's house.

For anyone that may want to have certain items shipped to them from a wonderful Polish market here is the web address. They have been in business since 1932. I always remember going to the store close to where my Busia lived. Starting this month they are now able to ship. They have been state inspected.

I placed in on a foil pan on a grill and let it cook up, turning for about 20 minutes. The skin will burst, but if you handle it carefully, it will remain together.

Jannie,

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You! Yes! I actually am looking for a polish market that SHIPS! I live in Denver, CO and am having the hardest time finding the right kielbasa.

I'll give it a try... hopefully, it will taste "right", I am sure it will be pretty close. I am from Toledo, OH too!
