Stuffed lamb stomach. Pour the sheep's blood into a pot, but don't add vinegar, wash the stomach thoroughly, slice some meat from the sheep's neck, then some of its fat, mix it together, you may add some grapes affected by noble rot, mix it with the blood, stuff the stomach with the mixture, spice it, stitch it and poach it, if you have water from cooking the lamb, pass through a strainer it on the stomach and slice some onions, then cook it. Add some vinegar when serving it, put the stuffed stomach on a clean pot. Put some horseradish on it, but it shouldn't be too hot, for it would take its strength. Lamb and beef are that types of meat that you can cook with bacon, black pepper and lentils, but we Hungarians cook some dishes with pork only.
