Chocolate, orange and blood. Three flavors that come together wonderfully in this recipe. It’s definitely a favorite.
Buckwheat blood dumplings stuffed with mushrooms
I’ll admit it, this is a weird recipe, somewhere between ravioli, russian pelmeni and gyoza. Just…With extra blood. They are a bit time consuming to make but definitely worth the effort as they only take a couple minutes to fry. Make a big batch (double or triple the amounts in this post) and keep them in the freezer for a quick lunch.
They go wonderfully well with steamed vegetables, parsnip or celery root puree, or simply some rice.
Spicy Habanero Sanguinaccio Dolce
Sanguinaccio Dolce is a traditional Italian dessert from Naples, usually served during the festivities of Carnevale. This rich, dulcet pudding is customarily made from pig’s blood, milk, chocolate, and sweetened with a bit of sugar, though other ingredients occasionally appear, such as dried fruit and nuts.
