There are also several kinds of homemade kielbasa, knockwursts, bratwursts, head cheese, pimento, pepper and olive loafs, all kinds of ham,
Canadian bacon, perfectly smoked, thick-cut slab bacon and a full line of meat - and that's just a sampling.
In the fresh meat department, house-aged NY strip steaks, porterhouse steaks and sirloins are butchered to your specification. Chopped chuck
is ground while you wait, and even the chicken is cut to order. Good Polish sauerkraut is made with bacon, apples and onions. Warm German
potato salad is well worth a try, as are German ham salad with apples, pickles and capers and hot pastrami sliced thick or thin.
The Swiss Pork Store is small, but the shelves are filled with lots of imported dry groceries. There's a good selection of German, Polish,
and Austrian cookies, biscuits, candy, gooseberries, or sour cherries in light syrup, flavored baking oils, sauces, teas, bread, pickles, jellies,
jams and many other European items.*
A grandmother would feel right at home at the Swiss Pork Store!
