Chinese-Korean Blood Sausage

According to the 2010 census, there were officially 1,830,929 ethnic Koreans living in China and recognised as one of China’s 56 ethnic groups. The largest concentration is in Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture, Jilin Province, in the north-east bordering - guess where – North Korea. They have been there for centuries. The actual number today is widely believed to be higher, with some 4 to 5 thousand recent refugees living there illegally.

 

Anyway, what I have just taken delivery of is this Korean blood and glutinous rice sausage from Yanbian. I am an inveterate blood sausage fiend and always eager to try new examples from as many places as possible. I'll cook some tomorrow morning for breakfast and report back.

Of all the foods you have posted over the years  this is one of the least appetizing. And I love blood sausage. 😂

I tend to agree. It doesn't look very appealing at all. I like my black pudding to be black!

But, you've got to try! Well, I have to!

I suspect that this particular version would not be easy to acquire here. I will have to enjoy it vicariously.  But let’s be perfectly honest. I probably wouldn’t try it even if I could. I am not that adventuresome anymore.

As promised, I tried the sausage today. First I cut open a small section. This let me see inside.

Too much rice; not enough blood.

Then I fried it in rice bran oil (a neutral oil so as not to influence the taste) wihout any added seasoning.

It was a little mushy and crumbly at the same time, but the taste was actually perfectly nice, especially after  I added a little salt and black pepper. Not bad at all.

Still prefer the local version, though.

 

And Stornoway has nothing to worry about.
