Cruise news and Pork Loin with Apples

Witamy! (that’s Polish for Greetings!):  We’re back at it again after being away for a couple of weeks.  We were on a cruise with a group of ballroom dancers and had a ball.  We met the ship’s Food & Beverage Manager who is half Polish and loves our food.  He was very interested in the book and wants a copy.  I tried to get him to sponsor us for a Polish cooking demonstration on an upcoming cruise but he didn’t go for it.  Too bad!

Here's a great recipe my mom used to make:

Pork Loin with Apples
Schab z jablkami
Serves 4

1 1/2 pounds pork loin, boneless
1 3/4 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon bacon drippings
1 tablespoon caraway seeds
3 tablespoons water
3 large onion, sliced
4 cooking apples, peeled, cored

Sprinkle the meat with salt and flour. Brown in hot drippings. Place in a kettle, pour the drippins over, sprinkle with caraway seeds. Add water, cover and simmer for 1 hour.

Add the onions and the apples, simmer for 1/2 hour more.

Remove the meat, slice and place on a warmed platter. Rub the sauce through a sieve, add the leftover flour, bring to a boil. Pour over the sliced meat.

Serve with potatoes, cabbage and dill pickles.

The Polish phrase for today is:  daj mi buzi, pronounced:  “dai mi boozhee”, which means “give me a kiss.” What you do with this is totally up to you!
