Dinner tonight: Blood Sausage!
The yummie-looking pix of blood sausage on ebay was irresistible, Black Pudding (Morcela) from Portugal! A link (the sausage kind) arrived a week later. Just the partner for some equally black squid ink fettuccine, don't you think? Lots of sliced garlic, onion. Tomatoes and green peas for color. Plus a couple of shrimp ... make that three each. Turned out to be surprisingly mild, note of cumin with a nice earthy taste, added more salt and freshly ground pepper.
Happen to have some Torres 5G Garnacha to go with it, it's from Spain which is close enough. Very nice.

Where do you store them? We lived in an old farm house when I was 6 and had a root cellar. I loved that cave like place so my mom would send me in to fetch things. My poor mom was terrified of spiders. Not too crazy and snakes, toads or interesting beetles either. How she wound up with me for a daughter is anyone's guess.
These 2 varieties are considered long term storage onions and keep quite well. Last years crop lasted till late spring.
