31. 农家柴火丸子 (nóng jiā chái huo wán zi) – Peasant Family Firewood Balls

Now, I know you are looking at the picture and thinking “they’re not balls”, and of course, you’re right. But that’s their name (sometimes they are balls). They’re not firewood, either. Or made by peasant families; at least these ones weren’t.

What they are is firewood smoked tofu and pigs’ blood sausages. The ingredients as listed are: Soy beans, water, pork, pigs’ blood, vegetable oil, salt, chilli, Sichuan peppercorn, star anise and cassia bark.

They are a speciality of Hunan, especially 邵阳 (shào yáng), a city in the south-west of the province.
