King of the Kovbasa 2009

Saskatoon's 8th annual King of the Kovbasa -- 12 Feb., 2009.
Working my way through 12 different kovbasa was a labour of love aided by crackers, cheese and Ukrainian beer.

My three finalists.


All the entrants were listed in the program -- without numbers.

Not all kovbasa are created equally -- but most of them are pretty darn good. It was hard to narrow it down to a favourite, but this was it -- #1 -- the overall winner from Smokehaus Meats in Martensville.

Mustard is a Must

Did you know Saskatchewan produces half of the world's supply of mustard seed? I gleaned that fact from the new website of the Saskatchewan Mustard Development Commission. Check it out. It's got lots of recipes.
