    What do I do? The thought of it is nauseating. [​IMG] How would I prepare it? I don't mind trying new things, but I like to try things that have been prepared by someone who knows what they're doing. I'm at a loss on this one. I haven't even looked at it yet because it's frozen. Any Swedes out there? [​IMG]

    YUMMY!!!!!!!!!! Thaw it and one way to cook it is to cover it with water or beer and simmer it until it is done. I have also grilled them and cooked them in the oven. They are tasty, just don't let the name bother you.

    The only blood sausage I ever had was like a luncheon meat. It was about the size of bologna in diameter and it had chunks of meat in it ,it actually looked kind of pretty. I wouldn't eat it as a child but my tastes changed and it was quite good actually. I know there are other types of blood sausage which you need to cook. Just be like Andrew Zimmeren on Bizzare foods, " if it looks good, eat it! " lol. If you don't try it, you'll never know, and it sure won't hurt ya.

    Okay, I swear I used to know what this is, but I can't think of it anymore, so I am going to go ahead and assume it is something gross lol!

    defrost it
    grill it
    then let simmer (i usually use a disposable tin pan on other side of grill) for about 10 min or longer.
    you can simmer in whatever you like, beer, water BBQ sauce, mustard sauce etc. I use 1 bottle dark beer and 1 small jar whole grain mustard.

    Kaszanka can be a very acquired taste. I'm 1/4 polish and can't stand the stuff [​IMG] , but grilling it is a good way to prepare it and then like was previously posted boil it in a beer solution. Kielbasa is way more my speed.

    That show Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern eats that stuff. I've seen it prepared on the grill, in skillets over a gas oven. Very unique and healthy food.
