Homemade Polish Sausage (Kielbasa)
This recipe sounds more like the fresh kielbasa we get from the Polish butcher than any other recipe I have come across. Unlike the smoked version, this needs to be cooked thoroughly. You can roast the kielbasa at 425°F for 45 minutes or simmer it in water for 30 minutes.
