WHAT is that special ingrediant or flavoring - Ostrowski's Polish Sausage, Baltimore

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi Everyone,

 

I am VERY new to sausage making. I grew up in Maryland next door to some wonderful Polish neighbors. Once a year thier family would get together, butcher a pig and make sausage. Every year, they would give use some. It is fresh sausage, made with pork. It was amazingly good.

 

Years later they moved away (would never give up the recipe). Many years later, I ran accross Ostrowski's Sausage made in Baltimore on Bank Street. The local Safeway carries it. There is a distinct flavor in that sausage that is the SAME as my dearly missed polish neighbors. I just can't figure out what it is.

 

It is not garlic, salt, pepper, paprika, cinamon, oregano or sage. This is a prominate flavor and makes this sausage special. I know this is a long shot, but do any of you gurus have any ideas? It must be something used in traditional polish sausage as they both share this ingrediant.

 

Any help is appreciated!

 

THANKS!

 

Rob

Most Polish sausages are made with Marjoram.

It is indeed Marjoram. I have some old Polish cookbooks and all the fresh kielbasa recipes call for garlic and most for Marjoram.

Make sure to mix ingredients well and go a little heavier on the garlic. After stuffing it tends to mellow and if frozen it will slowly loose some of the garlic flavor over time.
