Here is the story of this recipe. My dad “Eddie” and my uncle Leonard “his brother” only made this kielbasa once a year. But they made enough to not only give to our whole family “both sides” but to get us through Christmas and Easter. They would make this the month before Christmas, and we had it on Christmas morning and on Easter morning “taking some to church to be blessed”. When it was gone we knew there would be no more made till the next Christmas! Which made it that more special:-))))) This is how my grandfather made it, and this was passed down to my dad, and then me.

    To those who do not know about marjoram here is the skinny. It's a herb, has a minty citrus almost flavor. Only buy it when you are ready to use it as it will loose its flavor quickly. It is liked to oregano but has a milder flavor. Substitutions: Basil Thyme Oregano Summer savory I hope this helps!
