I'm the person who previously inquired. I've seen E-mail from Richard Garza
to other members that indicates you folks aren't familiar with this sausage.
The name "prasky" is not related to Pracek's store. I called a Czech friend
in Omaha today and he said it is "Prasky burst" or "Praske burst", also
known as "Prague sausage". It's ready-to-eat like bologna, and is loaded
with garlic. I had this for lunch every day in high school (class of 1942).
Here's a link to the source that I found in Chicago that says Prasky is
unique with them. Not true, as I had it 70 years ago in Omaha. Perhaps
their recipe is unique. http://www.crawfordsausage.com/prasky2lb.shtml
Please E-mail your respose to me if you can, or can not, come up with a
Another item I can not find in Denver is kolache. If I want them bad
enough, I have to make them myself, and I'm no baker.
