I have followed the sausage saga with interest.
Is Polish kabanos known in the US? Australians have assumed
this is a plural, back-formed a singular kabana ... painful to
anyone who knows Polish.
How widely is kranski susage known in the US? I believe it is
from Ger Krain, Slovene Kranjsko, the region on the Austrian
-Slovene border. Is it known as kranski?  Krainer?

(Slovene adjective kranjski)
