    Hi,

    I fermented them for a week during the summer. I made enough to enjoy some when it was first made, then I kept some for Christmas. I bought the tiny mushroom dumplings from Shop and Save.

    The inspiration came from the book, Fresh from Poland: New Vegetarian Cooking from the Old Country.

    I really, really liked this book. I made a number of recipes from it and will buy it eventually. It was a cookbook club selection.

    Regards,

    When I was in Grad School, my office mate invited me to his Christmas Eve Soiree which he had every year for his friends. As I am a Vegetarian, I told him that I will bring something to share for a main course, and that way I am not obligating him/wife to make something just for me.

    I ended up making "Christmas Fried Rice" .... regular fried rice, with Red Peppers and Green Peas!! It was a big hit, and from then on till I was in Grad School it became a tradition for me to bring it every year. When I left, his wife took a recipe from me to continue with it.

    After I moved to Chicago; I started doing the Jewish Christmas ... Chinatown and a Movie at Showplace Icon on Roosevelt; after volunteering in the morning at the Shedd Aquarium! Alas, this year was undone by the pandemic.

    So I went back to may grad school days and made Christmas Fried Rice again. Delicious!!
