Picture it: You just got home after a long day at work. You’re pressed for time and the kids will be coming home soon. What’s for dinner???

I sat down with the owners of Wedzonka LLC, an authentic Polish Smoke House, and learned a bit about their foods and culture.

“We take pride in our cooking and make it with love,” says owner, Barbara Stanczak. “Our favorite products are Kabanos links and Kielbasy because it reminds me of my childhood.” Wedzonka also offers delicious ham, bacon, tenderloin, pork pate, blood sausage and yummy jams and sauerkraut! Made with zero preservatives and additives, you are sure to get the finest cuts of meats made with the best organic ingredients.

“We use birch, oak, hickory, wild cherry, apple and peach trees to smoke our meats!”, Barbara adds enthusiastically. “These hot and cold methods of smoking only adds to the flavor and richness.”

I don’t know about you, but a hickory smoked sausage for dinner sounds like heaven right about now. And don’t forget the sauerkraut!

Barbara is kind enough to give us a free recipe for jam straight from her parents and grandparents. Visit Wedzonka at the Monroe Farmer’s Market beginning May 1st for more delicious treats.

Recipe for jam

Other favorite products to make is peach and strawberry jam because the aroma is very delicate and fresh and tasty. Clean the fruits, peel the skin from peaches and cut into small pieces. Put everything on a banking sheet and bake in the oven around 6-8 hours at 350 F. If there is any juice then you have to pour it into a bowl. Mix the fruits in a blender and add a little honey at the end. Then put the fruits into a jars and pasteurize around 3-4h for 3 to 4 times.
