    Black Pudding/Blutwurst

    Hi everybody,

    Does anybody know if this product is available anywhere in Moscow (or even Russia)? I love this sausage and would love to be able to eat it when I feel like it, and not just when I visit Germany. I've even checked the menus online of various German restaurants in Moscow and none of them offer it.

    Or, if it's not available here, do you know where I can buy a litre of pigs' blood to make it at home (I've found a nice recipe I wouldn't hesitate trying out if only I knew where to get the blood from).

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Cherie

    One can try GLOBUS, the German Hypo out on Riga Highway. But it is not the same as / we / know from Austria or Germany. Sanitation laws are also different here. And during the hot months (summer...) it is forbidden to make them and keep them in the refrigerators. At the weekend markets for instance. Where one can find them during the cold season.

    The only black pudding I eat is from Ireland , like Guinness ......I only drink it there as well . The Irish Embassy is a good source but to a chosen few

    Thanks for your replies. I was hoping for a simple answer, like a local shopping centre or market. I'm just one person and don't need to buy bulk from wholesalers, and I'm not keen on home delivery.

    Benedikt, I guess I'll wait for winter and take a look in the markets. I really love the German version, and the French boudin is also good, so I was hoping to find something similar here (even though I've been looking when I've been out and about, still yet to find some here).

    What about buying the blood and making it at home - any suggestions?

    The big pork slaughterhouses are not around Moscow. And no one will let you in where they do process the pigs.

    Ok, thank you Benedikt, for your help. I guess I'll just have to start planning my next trip to Germany (or maybe I'll go to Austria next time!).

    When I was in Ireland the only colour of pudding I was served was white pudding, never black, still was tasty..

    because you got only -white - pudding. Suppose blood is not always easy to get. So the clever Irish invented blood pudding without blood...Suppose as a sort alternative to Scottish Haggis?
