It’s that time of year again to grab your Fat Tuesday deep-fried Polish jelly-filled doughnut.
Paczki, pronounced PUNCH-key, are a Polish jelly-filled doughnut, traditionally served before the Lenten season begins. They are circular, deep-fried, and filled with various fillings such as apricot, lemon, custard, vanilla cream, blueberry, peach, cherry and more.
Celebrate the Paczki Polish Style at Pączki, Polkas and Piwo. Tuesday Feb 17 starting at 7:30 AM and lasting all day long at BOTH Kravitz Delicatessen at 3135 Belmont Ave. Liberty, Ohio and Poland Library.
