Description: Cabbage Pierogi (Pierogi ze slodka Kapusta) have a more mild flavor when compared with the Sauerkraut variety. They are popular with folks who have an eastern European orientation. This dumpling is filled with freshly shredded cabbage, cooked and mixed with seasonings.
Preparation: Allow pierogi thaw, preferably in your refrigerator. Bring a deep pot of salted water (sea salt recommended) to a rolling boil. Depending on the size of your pot, drop 6 to 12 pierogi one at a time into the boiling water. Make sure there is enough room so that the pierogi do not touch. When the pierogi rise to the surface, cook an extra 3-4 minutes and then serve. Optionally, after boiling them, place thawed pierogi in a skillet with melted butter on low heat and turn occasionally to brown evenly on both sides.
IMPORTANT: Avoid high heat as it tends to toughen the dough.
Weight: 11-13 pierogi per package. 1lb.
