A FAMILY TRADITION
Sixty-five years ago, our Jaju started a Polish food business with his brothers and sisters in Western Massachusetts—hand-crafting pierogi, golabki, and kielbasa for their community. Fast forward to the ‘90s and you’d find us, Vanessa and Casey, spending our weekends cutting, stuffing, and sealing pierogi in the back kitchen alongside our elders.
Pierogi was a typical item on our dinner plates, something we took for granted. When we moved out to Boston for school and work, pierogi became more difficult to come by and we had to wait for deliveries from our mom. Friends talked of having to buy the mass-produced pierogi to get their fix! For us, that just wasn't okay. We would have to do something about it. In 2015, we dug out our grandfather's handwritten recipes and got to work, perfecting traditional, handmade pierogi for Boston.
Hand made in Gloucester and available in speciality stores and farmers markets across the area, we love to source ingredients locally, partner with other small businesses, and get to know our community.
Inherited from our Jaju, this traditional polish process is a labor of love. Everything from mashing potatoes to making and cutting the dough, we do from scratch with our hands.
Featuring flavors like cabbage and mushroom, sweet potato, butternut squash, apple & sage, kielbasa, potato and cheese, and jalapeño cheddar, our pierogi use only a few straightforward ingredients.
COOKING YOUR PIEROGI
No planning required
You can cook your pierogi from frozen. Just place them in a pan with butter or oil on low to medium heat to start. Warm for five minutes. Then, slightly increase the heat to crisp.
After about 10 minutes, turn off the stove heat and serve with sauerkraut, sour cream, applesauce, or sautéed onions, and enjoy your handmade pierogi!
