Perogi mishap

Well the old Babas needed a new onion top on their orthodox
church...So I bought 4 dozen cheese and potato perogies (not
triangular). The problem is that they were either allowed to
defrost prior to delivery or they were frozen improperly to
start with. These things although they taste great are stuck
together in one lump, even after boiling. Any known fixes?

What'd you have to pay for them? Color me Curious.

Bingo. It wouldn't have happened had they been
triangular. The geometry of the triangular ones prevents
inadvertent sticking.

That's how they are cooked probably before you get them. It
is the traditional way.

Geography. One's from Eastern Europe, the other's from
Italy.

(I'm oversimplifying, of course - but they are both versions
of filled dumplings.)

WOW!! I think that's maybe a third of what our Church Ladies
sell them for.

Well, both are sort of dumpling-like. Both are made with
noodle dough. Both can be filled with a variety of fillings
(meat, vegetable, cheese, fruit) although I'm guessing that
a "traditional" ravioli filling is meat and pierogi (pirohy
in my camp) are not meat-filled. More typical would be
something like sauerkraut or potato with or without cheese.
THAT said, the major difference that's struck me is that
ravioli are two pieces of dough with the filling inside and
the dough sealed *on all edges". Have a look at the various
ravioli makers and forms. Pirohy are made from a single
piece of square dough with the filling inside and the dough
folded over, with only two sides of the resulting triangle
needing sealing.

Oh, ravioli are Italian; pirohy are Eastern European --
mostly Slovaks, Poles, and Ukrainian.

Around Pgh. they're about $4.50 these days from the church
ladies. About $6.50 from the commercial places. Kate

After serious thinking about it and getting out the spread

mistaken it was $3.00 a dozen.

Traditionally using a piece of Round Dough, folded over
into a half moon...Cut out usually with a regulation sized
standard kitchen drinking glass. This leaves only 1 side
to seal. At least in these parts....Heavy Ukranian

Which church and are they still selling? Not that I have
time to eat anything I buy, but it's always nice to know
these things for future reference!

Not sure which church as it was done for. I bought them
thru a woman at work. I think it was a church in
Petersfield,or maybe Fraserwood but I'm not sure. And no
they aren't still selling. They were good eating even
though they were all stuck together. I ate them boiled;
swimming in butter and full fat sour cream with crisp bacon
and fried onions... That's the way I like them...Others
like them pan fried or even French Fried. Oh they were
potato cheddar perogies. Yumm!

Cool. Now it's about half the cost of what our Church Ladies
sell them for. :) And if your $2 or $3 is Canadian dollars
(I would assume so), it's an even bigger bargain!
