My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Beer Kielbasa

How many times have I made this! As a young adult, about 50 years ago, this was at every get together or party. I found this reminder in one of Joyce's cook books, Heinz Family Recipes. Great Super Bowl food!

Beer Kielbasa
depends on what else you're having
print recipe

2 pounds kielbasa (polska), sliced in rings 1/2-3/4-inch thick
1 can beer (any kind)
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 cup white or apple cider vinegar (Heinz)
1 tablespoons horseradish
1/4 cup yellow or spicy brown mustard (Heinz)

Bring to a gentle boil and cook covered the kielbasa in the beer for 15 minutes. Mix the remaining ingredients together with a wire whisk and add them to the kielbasa and beer. Cook and stir until it becomes thickened. Don't leave unattended or it will stick.
