Halloween! Halloween! What a funny celebration! What an old tradition!

Irish people, who came to America in the middle of the 18th century, brought this ancient Celtic celebration. A night when the spirits of dead people return to visit the Earth, a night of ghost stories, witches, performing antics, jokes, different costumes, bonfires and traditional dances. Also, a night to drink and to eat.

Old Irish people used to eat a soup of bread and garlic, because garlic is one of the best things to be protected in front of a witch. They used to add chili pepper, because it gives some red color to the soup (red is the color of the blood) and chili is also good to scare off witches and evil spirits.

Then, if you like to be traditional, a garlic soup can be perfect for your Halloween menu. However, if you are looking for some originality, we propose an alternative Halloween menu, maybe people won’t eat but you will have a good topic for conversation.

Blood Pork with Onion:

You must know that in Ireland, there are abundant evidences of the persistence of the practice of bleeding live cattle until the 19th century because it was considered to be a preventative measure against cattle diseases. Afterwards, they mixed the blood drawn with butter and herbs and it provided a nutritious emergency food. Today, of course, this practice is forgotten but in different countries all around the world, solidified blood pork is fried with onions and served for breakfast.

Bloody Mary:

If your guests have been impressed by the previous dish, you can prepare them a good cocktail: add Smirnoff No.21 Vodka, tomato juice, red hot sauce, green hot sauce, Worchester sauce, lemon juice, pinch of salt and pinch of pepper. Then, pour back and forth between two mixing glasses. Strain into an ice-filled highball glass. Finally, garnish with celery stalk. You have got a delicious Bloody Mary, the king of the cocktails!

A last advice. Have some biscuits, a pancake, or other desserts to offer your guests, only to those who have refused to eat your shocking Blood Pork with Onion.

Enjoy The Day!
