Kaszanka – Polish black pudding fried with onion

Polish Kaszanka is a sausage made of pig’s blood and groats (buckwheat or barley). Sometimes pig’s liver is added, depending on the region. It’s traditional polish food. Originally it was a dish prepared after pigsticking, to use all the parts of the pig. It has quite high levels of fat and cholesterol, but at the same time it supplements iron and zinc. Use it cautiously and enjoy Kaszanka:)

Kaszanka can be served cold, grilled or fried on the pan.
