Fat Tuesday – Time for Paczki
So by tradition, everyone loves to eat, drink, and be merry, on Fat Tuesday.
Many of the Eastern Europeans indulge in homemade donuts, Pampushky (in Ukrainian), or “Paczki” (in Polish).
I found a fairly easy recipe for this delicacy, on one of the websites I frequently visit, where my friend, Babara , posts many Eastern European recipes.
I also noticed that many grocery stores have “Paczki” available around this time of the year. They are even labeled as “Paczki”, rather than ” Polish Donuts”.
If you live in New Jersey, or New York City, you can find fresh ones (soooo delicious) at these establishments:
East Village Meat Market and Deli
139 Second Ave., New York City, NY (between 8th and 9th Street)
Owner: Julian Bachynsky
Pulaski Meat Products
If you are up to making these for tomorrow, you may click on this link, to get to my post for the recipe.
