Ferdie to Bob

  • Boojferd
    Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.

    Mary Kruta

    Kruta's has been making Paczki since their early days in E St Louis. They are traditionally made with a richer dough. More eggs, milk, and butter or margarine. They made them to rid the pantries of the items they would be fasting during Lent. Early on they were mostly filled with povidla (prune butter). Many different types of fruit filling were added through the years. About 20 years ago a bakery in Detroit started a huge marketing blitz to increase sales during February. The Retail Bakers of America picked up on it and pushed it across the country.
    My favorite one that we make is the diced apple filled rolled in cinnamon sugar!
