Duck blood soup

There’s no way in hell I’m eating something like this, bring the bat soup and the Thai delicacies on, but Vietnamese blood soup…yuck!

See it’s all about the way it’s cooked because…well, it’s not cooked at all! They just slit the duck’s or goose’s throat, gather all the blood in a boll, add ginger, some vegetables and sometimes sprinkle peanuts on top and there you have it, that’s your soup. It only takes about 15 minutes to prepare and it’s regarded as a source of strength by those who cook and eat it.

Strangest thing is, some restaurants in Germany have started serving this and it is a huge success, people can’t get enough of it! If you want to know more about it, or where you can get some, search it online, it’s called Tiet cahn…Good luck!

    I guess people will eat anything. I just can’t imagine. If they don’t cook it, then they must have to drain the blood and serve it FAST so that the blood doesn’t get like jello. I don’t think it just stays liquid, though I don’t know anything about eating blood and I think that’s a very good thing. Interesting post.

    I do not think this would match the Biblical religious command to NOT eat the Blood of an animal of sorts. So, therefore, I personally can not see myself eating this.I may be functioning by Jewish rules, I think.

    The way Tai describe in making it on the money except we pluck the feathers on top of the duck’s head then cut it to get the blood. Maybe the duck is able to breath/live longer so the blood will be fresher? idk We just always cut on top of the head. Good stuff, but I would only eat it if my family makes it.

    Ummm … wow! Ok, so it looks amazingly delicious, like a gelled tomato soup, but once you know what it is, what a stomach turner! haha :)
