  • Pierogies!

    I think I had my first few pierogies shortly after my twin-sister married her first husband, which was in the mid-seventies. He was Polish (super guy btw and I'm still friends with him) and his Mom made them from scratch. Her second husband, who is of Hungarian/Ukrainian descent and whom she married in 1999 also had a Mom who made them from scratch. And now I have a young couple as neighbours who are of Polish/Ukrainian descent and twice a year both sets of their parents come down to make dozens upon dozens of homemade pierogies for family and friends.

    So while I've had homemade Pierogies from three different old-world cooks I haven't tasted any difference between them and once frozen, I haven't found a difference between homemade and the store-bought variety. Am I missing something?

      They are Polish, this is Polish.

    At the suggestion of my neighbour I've been serving them with a sauce/gravy of Cream of Mushroom soup and Sour Cream. After I've sauteed onions and mushrooms I mix the aforementioned in with it and then pour it over the perogies (which I boil first and then quickly pan-fry).

      Maybe they are all sharing the same pierogie recipe?

        Could be......I can't see there being much variation (other than the filling).

        I work in Greenpoint which is transitioning from a Polish neighborhood to hipsters but there is still plenty of old school places around. Lunch at the grocery hot counter always includes perogies with caramelized onions, no mushroom sauce. The meat markets serve as examples for me to exercise self control!


        The main difference that iInotice is that the dough isn't as tender with the frozen ones. It's generally thicker to withstand the transport etc.
