Typical ingredients include fresh and fermented white cabbage (sauerkraut), various cuts of meat and sausages, often whole or puréed tomatoes, honey and mushrooms. The meats may include pork (often smoked), ham, bacon, beef, veal, sausage,
and, as bigos is considered a hunters' stew, venison
or other game; leftover cuts find their way into the pot
as well. It may be seasoned with pepper, caraway, juniper berries, bay leaf, marjoram, pimento, dried or smoked plums and other ingredients.




- a Polish soup made of duck blood
(sometimes hen, rabbit or pig blood would be used) and clear poultry broth. In English it is referred

Generally the sweet and sour taste of the soup comes from the addition of sugar and vinegar. However, there are hundreds of recipes popular in different parts of Poland and Lithuania. Among the ingredients used are plum or pear syrup, dried pears, plums or cherries, apple vinegar and honey. Like most Polish soups, czernina is usually served with Kluski, fine noodles, macaroni or boiled potatoes.
