Polish Sausages obviously came from Poland and it started off in the Middle Ages when the Catholic Church requires people to go fasting. Not just only with meat but also with eggs and milk and for the people who would disobey, there is a severe punishment.

The monasteries then conducted researches on familiar methods when it comes to meat preservation and so the people decided to experiment as well and they came up with sausages.

And finally during the XVIII century the “kielbasa” or the Polish word for “sausage”. During the time it was often described as a thick kind of sausage with dark color simply because it is heavily smoked. The sausage is always on the table of the noble families and knights.
