  1. Kristyna I love utopenec but I think the best is nakladany hermelin. Please I need the recipe! Thank you for your web, I sometiemes like to remember czech food and now i can cook it!

    1. 🙂 Will do nakladany hermelin for sure. Not sure when though. I have some recipes I have to do first.

  2. Thank you for recipe, I love utopence. I lived some time in CR. I hope You will put rybi salat recipe (it is after utopenci best for me). Your reciepes are great and site is best.

    1. Thank you Emir 🙂 Glad you enjoy it.

  3. H Kristyna,

    Just finished pickling the utopenci recipe. I tripled it because my husband when he found out wanted me to make more! I had left over pickling juice and didn’t want to waste it so I cut up some onions and bell peppers, put them into a jar and added the rest of the juice.
    By the way I can’t keep enough Sunkova pomanzanka in the fridge. My husband is going nuts over these recipes. He keeps telling me how it reminds him of the old days. He hasn’t had any czech food since his father passed away. I’m so glad I found your website.

    Have a lovely week,
    Karen

    1. Hi Karen,

      What an amazing comment! Your comment perfectly sums up the heartbeat of Czech Cookbook. Thank you for sharing. It makes me so glad to hear how happy your husband is. You are a great wife. In Czech we have the saying “Love goes through the stomach” 🙂 I am sure your husband feels very loved. 🙂 Steve and I send you both many greetings. 🙂

  4. Is the kielbasa fully cooked when you buy it?

    1. Yes

  5. My Mom used to take ring bologna and put it in the fridge with vinegar and onions. She called this domace buš (not sure if that is spelled correctly). Have you heard this term used? Is utopenci the same thing?

    1. Hm never heard of this. I don’t think it is the same thing since utopenci are marinated in spices and other things.

      1. My grandmother did that, but she called it “depression utopenci”. …she did add the right spices.

  6. Also, I’m finding that 1 inch pieces work better for the folks eating my utopenci.
