I was shooting just before Christmas and tasted what I think was called 'Bull's Blood Soup', which I really enjoyed in this weather and wondered if anyone could give me a recipe please.

Hi, briedog, and welcome to the forum.

I hope somebody can explain or provide a recipe. This is fascinating.

Was it a real soup? Like tomato or something? Or beetroot?

Or was it perhaps some sort of spiced mulled drink made with the strong flavoured Hungarian red wine known as Bull's Blood?

Kateuk makes things at http://www.etsy.com/shop/finkstuff and sometimes she does this too http://www54paintings.blogspot.com/ and also this http://finkstuff.weebly.com/

Hi every one.

Thanks for the welcome.

It was defianately a soupy drink with added booze and not a wine, was really scummy!!!!

I have today found a recipe for a soup that sounds like what i wanted so i`ll pass it on to you all!!!!

serves 10.....

1 bottle of vodka.

4 HOT chillies....

2 celery sticks

2 carots

1 onion

1 chilli

3 cloves garlic

1oz/2oz butter

2/3 tins good quality tomatoes

3/4 chicken stock

salt/pepper

Week before the soup add chillies to vodka....... and let them Breath together!!! lol

Finely chop all the vegetables except the tomatoes and sweat them in a big pan with the butter for 10 minutes or so.  This allows then to soften and the flavours to come out - very important.

Add the stock and the tinned tomatoes (if you have  greenhouse full of ripe tomatoes then use them by all means, just add them, chopped, to the vegetables earlier on).

Then simmer gently for 20 minutes.

Whizz the soup up until fully blended, then pass it through a normal sieve to remove any pips or nasty bits.

Season well then transfer to a warmed thermos.

Tnen add the wicked CHILLI VODKA to warm them up!!!!

Well it`s nearly the end of the shooting season Cry so i`m going to treat all the people i pick up  on the shoot with this little treat OOOO and a SLOWGASAM...

Uh oh, briedog, that would not work in this house. A bottle serves 2 at most! Big_Laugh Big_Laugh

Good man - thanks for posting the recipe. This is one that we must try for ourselves first, before attempting to serve it for a party.

Cheers.
