1 lb Pig's liver
1 1/2 lb Suet, chopped
120fl oz Pig's blood
2 lb Breadcrumbs( homemade is best)
4 oz Oatmeal
1 Medium onion, finely chopped
1 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Allspice
Beef casings(what they use to make sausages)

Stew liver in boiling salted water until tender. Remove liver, and mince finely. Reserve cooking liquid. Allow to cool. Mix all ingredients in large bowl. Stir thoroughly until blended. Fill casings with mixture. Tie off in 6 inch loops. Steam for 4-5 hours. Leave until cold. Beef blood can be used instead of pigs blood if you prefer, but as it is steamed for so long all the nasties are well and truly dead. My Nana gave me this for lunch everyday when I was a little kid, and I loved the stuff.
