Good Pierogies anyone?

I grew up on perogies, cabbage rolls, kielbasa (pronounced koo-ba-sa , not KIEL ;) and Borscht in Canada, my grandmother being 100% Ukrainian. I've been to Polonia, and the Baltic Deli...and I didn't like them at all *sigh* The closest i've had to mine, or my grandmothers was in Salem at Polonus European Deli. I find that Polonia and baltic use a mild cheddar in their perogies, you need sharp, extra sharp to get a good flavour, not sure of the potatoes they were using either...kinda bland. I like using Yukon Golds for my perogies. Believe it not though, Trader Joes has perogies in their freezer section that are really, really good. Boil them up, carmelize some diced onion in butter and throw the perogies in..served with sour cream, these are awesome!

So overall I don't think you'll find any place that will sell perogies as good as your husbands grandmothers, unless you come to my house heh ;) They're just a total pain in the butt to make!

My perogies :)

Spring Roll Wrappers!? Where?

Yes, Vietnamese spring rolls use the same type of wrapper. In Canada where i'm originally from, they call them that..they serve it with a dipping sauce that I have never come across here in the US...it's awesome.

Sorry Kobuta, I misunderstood what you were trying to say...my bad ;)

Spring Roll Wrappers!? Where?

No cause the "bumpy" ones are egg rolls. ;) I'm not referring to any "dessert" type of thing. Spring rolls usually have veggies in them, as opposed to egg rolls which have the veggies, and meat.

I'll just hunt at Kam Man again tomorrow and hopefully find them.

Spring Roll Wrappers!? Where?

Well I used to buy spring roll wrappers down in VA. They are thinner than your wonton or eggroll wrapper. I definitely do not want the clear rice ones ;)

Am I missing something? lol When I do egg rolls the outside is bumpy...when I do spring rolls they're nice and smooth and flaky...

see pic...seriously if i'm being dense let me know what i'm missing lol

Spring Roll Wrappers!? Where?

Kam Man, that's they place I was referring too in Quincy, the name was escaping me when I was writing the post lol

I looked there too, maybe they were out? Hmmm..I will look again when I go back. Super88? I've never heard of it (Just moved here from VA so i'm learning different places lol) Whereabouts is that?

Spring Roll Wrappers!? Where?

I really hope i'm doing this right lol I've reading here for awhile, and I'm finally taking "the plunge" ;)

Do any of you guys know where I can buy Spring roll wrappers? (i'm on the south shore) Not the rice type that you put in water first, the type you fry to a golden brown ;) I have looked EVERYWHERE...S&S, Shaws, Whole Foods, Hannafords..and even at the chinese market in Quincy...no luck. I ask the people who work at these *wonderful* establishments and they bring me to the Eggroll and wonton wrappers...erm, ya.

Anyways, anyone know? It's driving me mad! :)
