This year I have decided to give my hand at Christmas in July. I’m a sucker for all things Christmas so I will take any excuse to celebrate it twice.
A dish that features regularly on our Christmas table is called Cwikla. It is a relish made from beetroot and horseradish which accompanies cold cuts or roasted meats. I actually love it on cheese with crackers and some wine.
It is a dish that does pack a punch due to the horseradish content and as a child I remember that if ever we had a blocked nose dad would always make us sniff a fresh jar of this or horseradish cream. It would definitely clear your nasal passages. You can tone the flavour down by adding less of the horseradish if you don’t like it too strong.
My all time favourite accompaniment to this is mum’s Pasztet, a.k.a Polish pate.
What’s your favourite cold cuts accompaniment?
