I've been seeing blood sausage pop up on cooking shows, and although I've never had it, it intrigues me and I want to try it. Does anyone know where to find some good blood sausage in Central Jersey?
Places that specialize in Cajun cooking might have it under the name Boudin Noir and you could ask in Polish Deli's . Now I recall there's a Hungarian Deli in New Brunswick on Somerset St , corner of Oak that carries it .
Morcilla is very popular in Argentina, so you might try Latin America groceries or butchers who specialize in Southern Cone foods. Or if there's an Argentinean steakhouse nearby, you could ask if they serve it.
I'd try just about any European specialty shop in your area. It's all over the continent- German blutwurst, Italian sanguinaccio, even Swedish blodkorv, Spanish morcilla, etc.,etc.
I think that all cultures that make sausage, make a blood sausage. I know it is really confusing to me when I hear that "blood sausage" is an ingredient on a Food show and never give a hint which kind! They are all pretty different in taste texture, seasonings, as you would expect anything called sausage to be. I'd say, try to find a local ethnic deli and see if they have theirs and try it.
Blood sausage is one of those strange food items that almost all cultures seem to make in some form or another (except, of course, good ol US of A). For example, sausage is unheard of in Korean food in general, but somehow they still have blood sausage! And strangely enough it's almost identical to the latin american blood sausage preparation.
If you live near H Mart in Edison they have blood sausage and blood sausage soup at the food court.
