Best Kapusta

Lisa G. Sweet Pantry Gal


My Nephew got me motivated to start looking for my greatgrandmothers polish recipes. She realy knew how to put out those polish dishes. As a child I cooked with her alot. Heres one of my favorites that me and my mother found and made together.
Its a side dish but we have made it with kielbasa or pork for a casserole.
Easy and delish!
