    Did you make it with pork liver? I grew up in SW La. and got my hands on a very old recipe from a place that was known for it's boudin. I usually make about 50 or so lbs. a year, freeze it, give some away and eat the rest.

    Believe me... here in n.e. Illinois it was no small feat to find it myself. Finally found a butcher that would get it and so now I get a whole lot of it, portion it out, vacuum seal it and freeze it. So far I've been fortunate in that I've always either had enough to carry me over or the butcher came through.

    Trav, Saw them making this down south on "Dirty Jobs" Going to be a stupid question but do you boil this up and eat it, smoke it, what exactly do you do with it? I make all kinds of sausage every year and every since I saw it made I have wanted to give it a try. Does anyone have a recipe? Also check with PDI in Des moines for pork liver, they carry all kinds of specialty stuff like that, they are a sister company of Hy-Vee and you should be able to buy it through the store. Thanks for the input!

    Rich, I boil it up in a large SS pot. Then it goes through my meat grinder an then add in the rice an rest a the seasonins, green onions an parsley. Then stuff it.

    It can be steamed to reheat or put in a rice steamer, or if ya like a crunchy casin ya can cook em in the oven or on the grill. Another tastey treat is to slit the casin an make boudin balls in the deep fryer. It is somtimes warmed up an served on crackers. Like the recipe, there is just about as many things ta do with it as there are recipes an folks makin it.

    It's a bit time consumin, but very tastey.

    My recipe has brown rice, green onions, parsley an a variety of spices. There are alot of recipes available, just pick one out that has things in it ya like.

    Some of the other ways I've made boudin when I still lived down south was with crawfish tail meat or alligator. Although it's good, it's not nearly as good as good old "pork butt and pork liver" based boudin.
    Boudin and beer..... you can't get much better than that!
