Happy Pierogi Day 🤍

Taken from National ToDay on Twitter

I remember reading these for the first time. My mom just boiled them, these added a dash of salt and butter.

I’ve made them once or twice. My girls were little, so they didn’t care for them. I’m going to try again soon.

Do you have a special way you make yours (if at all?)

Here’s some interesting history!

Pierogi arrived on Polish territories in the 13th century. The were probably imported from the Far East via eastern neighbors such as Kievian Rus (today’s Ukraine) perhaps thanks to Hyacinth of Poland (a monk in a Kiev monastery who became patron saint of pierogi). In the past, pierogi were more popular in the eastern borderlands of Old Poland than in the west. The first written pierogi recipes come from Compendium Ferculorum a book published in 1682. It was the first Polish cookbook of the renowned cook Stanisław Czerniecki.
