How much would one Kielbasa sausage be - 1 kg? And what is Kielbasa sausage? Could I use any kind of sausage? Thanks! God bless!

I received a message with info on the Kielbasa sausage, but now I've lost it!! Thank you! to whoever posted. However, I have never seen Polska Kielbasa in our shops (Republic of South Africa), but will try local Boerewors or pork sausage.

God bless you, wherever you are.
