Reading all of your posts (very interesting!!!) I remembered a few things...
A soup called (spelling is not right) Chanina ?? It's Polish. Blood Soup. The broth is made from the blood of a goose..then they put goose meat, raisins pinapple (I think) and serve it with a scoop of mashed potatos in the center.
My aunt used to make it when I was a kid. I loved it, but didn't know what it was until I was about 12.
My dad used to make suet pudding. Suet being a special fat from around the kidneys.
It was a delicious, sweet treat. I have the recipe, but I'll NEVER make it. It takes about 24 hours to make, cooked in coffee cans which are set into a pot of boiling water. It is a heart attack WAITING to happen.
Oh...and I've had Emu and Buffalo
