It doesn’t take much to excite me . . really! This afternoon I could not stay awake. I was contemplating taking a nap. Earlier in the afternoon, a Hungarian reader had written me about my Chicken Paprikash recipe and offered to send me a traditional Hungarian Chicken Paprikash recipe.
The decision was made to take the nap but just before I left the computer, I checked email and she had sent me a whole collection of traditional Hungarian recipes. I was so excited . . could not even think of taking a nap. I’ve read all the recipes and am so excited to try some of them.
Being from southwest Louisiana, there are several things we love that a lot of people will not eat. There are some Hungarian recipes I will not try too. One of these recipes is for Sour Pig Soup. Here’s the ingredient that kinda got me: Wash and cut up the nails, feet, liver and lungs of six – eight week pigs. No, thanks! I’ll pass on that one! There are recipes that call for things I’ve never heard of and no doubt, can’t get here in my tiny little town. I’ll google some of the items and see what I can substitute. I’ve never heard of spawn or lebbencs.
I probably will not follow this recipe for fried chicken. Here’s one of the steps: Buy a live chicken and kill two hours before
But, there are so many good recipes here. If I didn’t already have dinner cooked for tonight, there are several recipes I’d make this very nite!
Zita, you’ve made my day! Thank you so very much for these old traditional recipes!
