Louisiana Boudin

Boudin – what is it ? Have you heard of it? Have you tried it?

I’m lucky to be from southern Louisiana where this item  is made. It’s history dates back the the Acadians that settled in Louisiana as a way to use up slaughtered pig parts. These days it can be found all over South Louisiana and each place  seems to have there own family recipe . If you are ever in the area and want to explore  here a link to the

St Landry Boudin Trail

 

Boudin (boo-dahn) is a wonderfully scrumptious Cajun dish made with meat, rice, and seasonings. Boudin sausage is normally stuffed with pork and rice, but you can add shrimp, crawfish, or alligator meat.”

A great article about boudin and its History–  Check it out for more information.

 

Cannatella Grocery was kind enough to show us how it’s made

Boudin 

Basic recipe is you want to try it.

Put your meat mix into a large bowl and add the cooked rice, parsley and green onions. Mix well, and add up to 4 cups of the reserved cooking liquid. Mix this for 3 to 5 minutes so you make a more cohesive mixture to stuff into a casing. You now have boudin.

But if that does’t make you hungry how about this?
