Cooking instructions

Once your kiszka sausage has fully thawed in the fridge, it's time to cook it and enjoy! There are a number of ways to enjoy this traditional Polish meat. A few of the most common preparations include grilling it outdoors, frying on a skillet, baking in the oven or building into a sandwich. See this blog article for detailed instructions on how to prepare your kiszka from Polana according to any one of these methods!

We also highly recommend enjoying this blood sausage hot off the grill in the summer. When preparing the Kiszka, do not pierce the skins. Cook over a low flame using a gas grill, and cook slowly to prevent the skins from bursting. For a charcoal grill, wait until the charcoal has some white ash and is not too hot. You can cook with your grill’s lid down to heat the sausages through. Enjoy with fresh sauerkraut & mustard!

Almost right

A very good kizhka. Different from what I'm used to but that's just a matter of taste


Prefer another brand.

Reminds me of Grandma

Had our first taste today. Takes me back 70 some years to Grandma’s house with fond memories of her love and care.

Every thing I ordered is the best! The kiszka is the best I’ve had in 20 years! Will definitely order again!
Thank you for such wonderful products to rekindle all my Polish tastebuds!


I am Czech and grew up on Czech on Polish food. Unfortunately where I now live, I can't find any Polish food at all. This kiszka is just about EXACTLY the same as I remember as far as taste is concerned. I highly recommend it!
