Blood Sausage

Has anybody ever seen blood sausage for sale at any grocery stores in town? CM, WF? Maybe somewhere else? I bet it'd probably be easy to find in New Braunfels...

      Probably, but who knows when Jesse will decide to make it next... would be nice if I could just go buy some on any given day. I'm guessing it's not a very popular item at grocery stores, though.

      Kocurek carries Morcilla pretty regularly. Also, check their twitter feed, as they are doing a blood sausage class in 2 weekends.

        Kocurek Family Charcuterie does a Spanish style blood sausage that's absolutely delicious. Again, you'll have to show up to a farmers market to get it, but they put a menu up of what they'll be selling each week. From what I can tell, they almost always have the smoked morcilla.

            Their pate de campagne is also really fantastic. It has pistachios in it. Goes well with cornichons and grainy mustard.

              Checked the the menu for this weekend and they will indeed have the smoked morcilla. You can even call and reserve a package if you like.

              What are you planning on doing with it? I've thought of making a batch of dirty rice with it, but haven't gotten around to it yet.

              I apologize if this violates posting etiquette, but it seems relevant. I saw that Kocurek is having a blood sausage making workshop on Oct 30: http://www.kocurekfamilycharcuterie.c...

              I've seen British style in the freezer section at Phoenicia.
              I wouldn't bet on finding it at New Braunfels, fresh or otherwise.

                CM South has two brands last I was there a couple weeks ago. One is imported from Spain, IIRC. They are vac-packed in a basket by the pickles after the cheese section. I've bought it once, it's not my thing.
