Borono is a cooked product made with salt, pork fat, suet, onions, blood, corn or wheat flour and parsley. Technically speaking borono is not a sausage as it is not stuffed into casing. It is, however, an interesting type of a "blood sausage" which has a shape of an American elongated football. The sausage is popular in northern regions of Spain; Asturias, Cantabria and north of Palencia in Castilla-León.

  1. Take a mixing bowl and fill with blood, water, fat, chopped onions and parsley. Mix all together and start adding flours slowly until a dough like texture is obtained. Let it rest for one hour.
  2. Place some fat in the center and shape the mass into an elongated oval ball. Immerse borono in a boiling water and cook for 90-120 minutes depending on a size. At first the sausage will sink to the bottom, then it will rise to the surface. Drain and cool in air.
  3. Refrigerate.
Borono is usually served for breakfast; it is sliced, fried in hot oil and served with cold milk. It is also served as a snack at any time, often served with sugar or with fried potatoes.
Beef suet or a combination of suet and pork fat may be used.
