“This is an old Polish recipe that was used at Easter time. This recipe is traditionally served with home made noodles. If desired the fruit can be removed, leaving broth to serve with noodle. If you do not know where to purchase a duck, contact a local farmer or butcher. If you prepare your own poultry be sure to add 1/2 cup vinegar to duck blood to prevent coagulation.”

Directions

  1. Cover whole duck with water in large stock pot. Add salt, and bring to a boil. Skim off foam.
  2. Place celery, parsley, allspice, and cloves in a cheese cloth bag, and add to stock pot. Cover and cook over low heat until meat is tender, approximately 1 1/2 hours.
  3. Remove cheese cloth bag from stock pot. Remove duck. Discard bones, cut up meat, and return to the broth.
  4. Mix in prunes, raisins and apple. Simmer for 30 minutes.
  5. In a medium bowl, beat flour and sugar into cream until smooth. Beat in duck blood gradually. Add 1/2 cup hot soup stock to blood mixture, blending thoroughly. Pour mixture slowly back into stock pot, stirring constantly until soup comes to a boil. Season to taste with salt, pepper, lemon juice and vinegar.

This was one of and still is my favorite soup. A lot of people think because it has duck blood in it that it is gross. But honestly, it is the best soup in the world! The best way to explain the taste of this soup is like a sweet & sour soup, you can add more sugar or more vinegar. All depends on your taste

Mother's is always best, right? So I agree with most ingredients except the heavy cream. It's just too heavy and too risky for a fruity soup with vinegar and lemon flavors! Also, I put in onions and garlic and celery leaves and bay laurel leaves. I put all the fruits, spices and vegetables in together with the duck and then strain the soup in a cheesecloth-lined colander. Then add the blood and thickening as expertly directed. It's an all morning process, but so worth the trouble. Especially with the homemade kluski! My family eats the potato kluski by the ton!
