Perohis at St. Michael's Attract Appetites, Renew Friendships
3/7/2014 (Updated 11:10:36 PM)A local Lenten tradition is now in it's 51st year. hundreds stopped by St. Michael's Church in Binghamton today to pick up their homemade and hand-pinched perohi.
The volunteers at the church made about 1,600 dozen.
You could buy perohis filled with either cheese and potato, or cabbage.
The folks at St. Michael's aren't only happy to share their perohis with the community, they'll also let you in on the recipe.
"So here's the recipe if you want to do it at home: 100 pounds of flower, 80 eggs, 5 gallons of water, some sour cream, mix it up and you're ready to go," said Father Tim Dutko, priest at St. Michael's
And how many perohi's will that make?
"Hundreds of dozens," said Dutko.
We're the last ones out of church and then we don't see our neighbors and friends.
But if you pinch perohi you get to see everybody, 50, 60 people you've personally known 20, 30 years or longer," said perohi pincher Michael Duke.
The perohi lunch will continue at St. Michael's for the next five fridays.
