I finally realized that I'm not posting right from my phone. So the response I typed up last night went into nowhere.
I guess Garlic is correct about Poland. Though they did occupied Ukraine for quite a while the Bigos is the only dish that I know of, whose origin credited to Poland. There might be others, but people think those dishes are Ukrainian. I suppose it is the same the other way around.
Pac, What you did looks really good. I put up some sauerkraut up yesterday. Next time I make this I will sure use some of it. Adds a whole another dimension to it.
Third and fourth pictures I am slicing the apples. I put them in the middle of the cabbage, tastes very interesting when everything is said and done. My mandolin needs to be upgraded. It is a homemade mandolin, that I made before leaving the soviet union so it is like 25 years old and wood is just to dried out and too warped now. I would have made new one but to re-grind the blades would cost me more than $100 dollars at that rate I can almost find a new mandolin.
You are what you eat.
