It's not that hard to make your own kielbasa! The best part is that you get to see exactly what goes inside. Boil or grill them before serving.

Pshaw! My husband and his whole family are Polish and they said these reminded them of home. I liked them too, and I can hardly find Poland on the map(ha). Thanks for the recipe. Read More

This is excellent polish sausage however this is NOT kielbasa. I grew up in Detroit eating real polska kielbasa from the Kowalski plant in Hamtramck. Eating this made me nostalgic and long for home. Again excellent polish sausage but not REAL kielbasa. Read More

I nixed the liquid smoke. I cooked it a bit too long on the grill but it still tasted great. I froze the raw sausages and they really are perfect to have on hand. Read More

Sausage is great as written only thing I did different was to grind my own meat. I used the biggest plate my grinder has. I do this so I know exactly how much fat content the final product will have. Also I find that pre ground meat is to fine and makes for a crumbly sausage. Read More
