Have you eaten food with blood as ingredient?

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?

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.

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 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.

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 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

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 :)

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!
