I'd like regular ancestral cooking emails!
Blood and chocolate. Together. In a recipe. When I first came across this, it sounded crazy to my ears, but, having read an entire book on the traditional use of blood in Italian cooking and seen 30+ recipes that combine blood and chocolate, it’s kinda seeming natural to me!
And I want to make it. So very much.
Finding pig blood from a trusted source has not been easy so far. I want to know how the animal’s been kept. I want to trust the sanitization. I want to know chemicals haven’t been added to it.
And then, I’ll be able to, with peace of mind, try to bring some recipes to life; recipes that value everything an animal gives when its life is taken for me.
There’s a video of an excited me showing you the book (it’s only taken me 9 months to read it!) in my story today :-)
