Hold your horses and park that “Ewww!” at the door because I’m about to serve up a slice of truth with a side of history. Now, if the mere mention of blood in a recipe has you reaching for the barf bag, maybe it’s time to ask yourself why you’re so out of touch with good old Mother Nature.
Blood isn’t just for vampires and B-movie horror flicks, folks. It’s a time-honored superfood that’s been jazzing up the human menu for eons! Here in Finland, we are flipping savory blood pancakes like it’s no big deal because, guess what? It isn’t! These iron-packed flapjacks are as traditional as it gets. But let me tell you, the store-bought stuff is to authentic blood pancakes what a whoopee cushion is to comedy — a cheap imitation.
That’s why I’ve cooked up a blood pancake recipe that’s straight out of the ancestral cookbook, ditching those weird, modern Franken ingredients that have been wreaking havoc on our bodies and minds.
So, who’s ready to join the real nutrient revolution and eat like the apex humans we’re destined to be? Let’s raise our forks and take a bite out of history!
