We filipinos have this bar-b-q made of curdled chicken's blood and 'dinuguan' which is made of pig's blood. A lot of you here may find it disgusting but a lot of us loves to eat it and doesn't even think that its disgusting. LOL! So would you like to try blood on your menu? have you tried some?

Yes. Quite frequently I eat "morcillas", that are a kind of sausage made with pig's blood and other ingredients (like little pieces of orange or peanuts). Perhaps it's similar to your "dinuguan".

Of course i do love dinuguan and i only eat it when my mom was the one who made it. And the bar-b-q?i like to eat it with a good sauce in Larsian. I maybe Filipino but one thing i haven't really eaten is Balot. Never really liked it.

I use not to like balut but now I love to eat it too. It's just a matter of getting used to it and hanging out with people who are balut fanatic.

It has been way over thirty years since I had blood sausage and even then I was not that fond of it. I would not want to try anything with blood in it, and I usually drain it off when I am cooking. I would not want even to try anything with blood in it, no matter how good it is or how persuasive you are. I think it interferes with the taste of the meat. Certainly I have to scrape the cooked blood off my pork chops before I can get the meat to brown properly.

I do agree with you that it does interfere with the taste of the meat and one cant taste anything but the blood. Happy cooking!

I love my mother's dinuguan. ^__^ and also the dinuguan in the turu-turo near the office. I don't like those cooked with too much water. I like it thick. ^__^ my mother's dinuguan is different, you can almost consider it as sauteed meat with pig's blood because it has little sauce. I have eaten dugo bbq before when I was in high school and I was exposed to a lot of street foods. its good but not really my favorite. ^__^;; i'd rather eat isaw.

I love isaw too. The dugo bbq taste depends entirely on how good the sauce, so in a way i agree with you.

We have different practices and culture. What is disgusting for you may not be disgusting for me. There are a lot of food too that i would never eat that which may be considered as normal food in some cultures.

In fact i have eaten blood-made foot millions of times. One of Spain's most well known foods is morcilla, which contains blood. And some other things as well. So yep, my answer is that i have eaten food-based food many times.

I'm also a Filipino and yes i love eating dinuguan. It's one of my family's favorite dish. I even cook that dish myself last weekend when we celebrated my mom's birthday. Right now though i'm using liempo instead of the innards. I agree most people find it disgusting but who cares? They just don't know what they're missing.

I hope one day Goldilocks would open an outlet there because they make one good dinuguan in their menu. They also have it in pasalubong packs. Maybe your family could send you some of it.

when I ate meat I used to like to have slices of black pudding, which contains pig's blood, fried for breakfast, as part of a "full English." all the best urban

I also used to enjoy haggis which contains oatmeal and offal inside an animals stomach, it is delicious. Not that it contains blood but I thought you would like to hear about it, try it if you get the chance with neeps and tatties (Mashed turnips and mashed potatoes.) all the best urban

Sure. Here in the north of England we have black pudding, which is blood sausage made with pigs blood, barley and herbs and suchlike. It's a Northern European thing really.

I would love to try your black pudding someday. The one the we make into a bar-b-q is actually like a black pudding made in pigs blood. We just put some catsup on it and it already taste yummy.

I love black pudding, when my relatives lived North of Manchester we always would go to the open markets and buy a black pudding and eat it as we looked round the market, I used to put loads of tomato sauce of mine, those were the days, I don't eat much now as I don't live in the north and it's all the processed stuff now.

I love black pudding which is made from pigs blood! It is a delicacy in the North of England, when I was much younger I used to travel up to see relatives and I would be taken to the markets where they would sell black pudding, it was delicious! It can be eaten on it's own or usually with a big fried breakfast

Ok I'm definitely not a vegetarian but I'm quite picky about what I eat. E.g. I will eat chicken, lamb or pork (not too often with the latter two as they are not so good for my health) and sometimes duck but tend to steer clear of game, whereas my husband is quite adventurous. If someone told me they were serving me something with blood in it, I'm sure I'd turn my nose up at it, but then again, I might have already eaten something in a restaurant without realising it contained blood? So never say never :)

I am quite picky on where i eat rather than on what i eat. I have the tendency to loose my appetite when the place is not conducive to eating or if i see something that i find 'yucky'. But still i don't say never too.

That is normal since a lot of people are like you, my sister for instance. She has passion for food but doesnt want to cook it as much as possible.

No I dont think I would be able to even have a meal on the table in front of me knowing that it has real blood in it. I don't eat meat and im deffinatly not going to eat blood from an animal in it.

Most filipinos do love dinuguan. Your husband is lucky to have a wife like you who may not be a filipino but can cook a very good dinuguan... rare indeed!

I also don't just eat any dinuguan. I make sure that I know who cooked it and that it doesn't have any unpleasant smell. I love the dinuguan in Red Ribbon and Goldilocks!

I am aware of dinuguan and blood pudding but I've never eaten it and won't be eating it. I've eaten some unusual food but there are some things I don't want to try and anything made with blood is one of them.

If ever you get to join the 'Fear Factor' reality tv show, the organizers would really feed you blood based menu. LOL! Maybe you will change your mind one of this days. There are things I don't want to try to but tried it anyway just for experience sake. who knows you may get to like it or really hate it. Thanks for responding!
