These delectable Polish spiced honey cookies are traditionally made at Christmas, but you can enjoy them any time of year. The more traditional Polish cookie recipes use only a cup of honey, no sugar, and are not nearly as sweet. We added just 1/2 cup of sugar, but you can add a whole cup if you like them very sweet, or add more honey.
Everyone loves mashed potatoes, but have you ever tried them Polish style with an incredible mushroom gravy on top?

So many customers ask us how to make sour pickles, Polish style. Fermenting cucumbers is actually fairly easy, much easier than making pierogi! Another benefit to learning how to make sour cucumbers is that when you pickle cucumbers yourself, you get all natural probiotics that are ruined when they pasteurize the bottled pickles found at most stores. And, you can save quite a bit of money!
