Morcilla Odolki or Odoloste

Morcilla Odolki also known as Odoloste is a popular blood sausage in País Vasco region of Spain. The sausage is made with onions and rice though leeks are also sometimes added. In Vasco-Castellan dialect the word Odolki or Odoloste denote “morcilla” which is blood sausage and the word “odol” signifies “blood.” Morcilla Odolki is a light-colored blood sausage due to its white colored ingredients: lard, rice, onions and a small proportion of blood (12%). Morcilla Odolki or Odoloste is very similar to Morcilla de Sangre de Oveja (Buscantza or Mondejos), another blood sausage made in the same region, but Morcilla de Sangre de Oveja is made with sheep blood and sheep meat.

There is a negligible amount of information on Spanish sausages in English, and even the Spanish books offer only a few recipes with general information, very skimpy instructions and hardly any explanations. "Spanish Sausages, Authentic Recipes and Instructions" fills this void and the readers will know not only what is a chorizo, longaniza, salchichón, fuet, morcilla, butifarra, salchicha, sobrasada, fiambre, androlla, butelo, morcón as well as many others, but also learn how to make each sausage. Of special interest is a collection of 200 recipes which were chosen for their originality and historical value. The book is a highly recommended addition to personal and professional culinary additions.
