Time to gather the Polish matriarchs of the family and the those in training (me).
Next, the rolling out of the dough. Aunt Kathy is a veteran at this job, please take note of the rare and expensive circle cutter. This tupperware cast off has actually been the official size for many years.
Next up: the filling and the egg wash for sealing.
We only make two fillings: cheese and sauerkraut & mushroom.
My favorite is the sauerkraut & mushroom.
The fork sealing was my job this year.
I did well, only a couple leaked… oh darn, guess we’ll have to eat those.
Mom was in charge of boiling. Then they had to cool, and Dad was in charge of packaging up for the freezer! Yeah, I know, all that hard work and no meal?
Gotta save ’em for Easter.
