That is basically what you have to do with blood in general. It is a little creepy, but you get over it. Blood also freezes very well, but you need to be quick about it. My worry is that those cubes are somehow cooked, rather than just coagulated, but it sounds like the butcher told you they are raw. That makes me happy, because I like cooking with blood.

Good to know about the freezer. The ones I saw were definitely raw. We're going to try making a boudin noir if I get time this weekend...

Mrs. Piob is making slow roasted duck for dinner tonight

Wine suggestions? Having cauliflower mash with it. A Bandol? Rose? New World PN?

why not an old world pinot? Like a Drouhin Pommard, or even a Jadot Pommard (like $30 at BevMo).

I have a Drouhin in the cellar but it's 2005 Joseph Drouhin Gevrey-Chambertin. Want to give it another couple of years.

Just got a 5# bag of fresh frozen divers scallops, U 10s. Some of the nicest looking ones I've ever seen. Sysco.

Spending $100s of thousands a year with Sysco. That makes the rep more than happy to issue a separate invoice so you can pay out of pocket.
