Are you eating Paczki today for Fat Tuesday?

 

Sally K. & David L. Hanson posted a blog on Fat Tuesday traditions in Wisconsin. Are You Ready for FAT Tuesday ? Mmmmm  They explained that there is a race to local bakeries to purchase Paczki (Polish Doughnuts) on Fat Tuesday.

Fat Tuesday is the day before Ash Wednesday. It is also known as Mardi Gras Day or Shrove Day. It is a day when people eat all they want of everything and anything they want as the following day is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of a long fasting period for Christians.

Food.com has provided a recipe for Authentic Polish Paczki. Click on the link to see the recipe for the Paczki pictured below.

Click on this link for many other Paczki recipes on Pinterest.

 

This is the recipe I found handwritten in my Polish grandmothers cookbook. I have since found ones almost identical in Polish cuisine cookbooks.

Hello Roy,  I try to post my mom Fastnacht recipe this morning but it only took the title and the last line of the blog, yes it was 381 words, so maybe to long.

I have never heard of paczki or the tradition of eating them on Fat Tuesday.  I learned something new today.

Oh my goodness, no wonder it's called "Fat" Tuesday. I don't eat any type of doughnut, so the answer is no. Ha.

No, I did not have one of those special Polish doughnuts, Roy, but I will remember for next year. They look so delicious.  Nice to see the photograph of the beautiful Dahlia.
