DUCK SOUP ( CZARNINA )

Eddie Jordan Recipe

By Eddie Jordan EDWARDCARL

This is a 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 noodles.
If you do not know where to purchase a duck, contact a local farmer or butcher.

NOTE: This recipe calls for 4 cups duck blood, but I use 4 cups chicken broth. If you use duck blood be sure to add 1/2 cup vinegar to duck blood to prevent coagulation.
