Do you use cookbooks as references? I have an enormous collection of cookbooks. Every time I walk into a book shop, I'll walk out with 4 or 5 new cookbooks. It's sort of an addiction. I rarely use the recipes in cookbooks, rather I use them for inspiration. If I'm out of ideas and need to get the creative juices flowing, I flick through a few of my old favorites – and in no time I have a thousand ideas. I'd be lost without my cookbooks. I can only hope that my cookbook will have this same effect on others. Where can we find your cooking videos? I have o ver 140 recipe videos on YouTube, ranging from basic snacks to full meals and desserts.

Author Kelly A. Harmon

Kelly A. Harmon used to write truthful, honest stories about authors and thespians, senators and statesmen, movie stars and murderers. Now she writes lies, which is infinitely more satisfying, but lacks the convenience of doorstep delivery, especially on rainy days. Which Came First, the Story or the Recipe? In this case, the recipe came first...and it was strong enough to inspire an award-winning medieval fantasy with the same name: Blood Soup. I'm an avid genealogist At the time I was writing Blood Soup, I was completing some research on the Polish side of my family and putting together a family-recipe cookbook. One of the recipes I found was for a special-occasion soup called czarnina (char-NEE-nah). In English, it’s referred to as Blood Soup.

I to yed with using a play on words for the darkness of the soup and the darkness of the theme of my story, but time after time my mind returned to the idea of the blood in the soup itself being most important to the story.

.

The English translation of "czarnina" is "black." The soup is actually named for its rich, dark color, rather than its ingredients.

Despite the sound of its name, Blood Soup isn't such a sinister thing. Blood is involved, but it only constitutes a small fraction of what is used to create the broth. The other ingredients are fairly routine and include cloves, peppercorns, and fresh apples and pears which create a sweet-and-sour soup served with thick, chewy noodles called kluski.

‘The soup is actually named for its rich, dark color, rather than its ingredients.’

BLOOD SOUP Besides, I said to myself, working through the plotting process, blood is a requirement for life! Right? Any great loss of it, and we perish. So, I began to think of ways blood could be used for healing or as a medicinal ingredient in the book. Taking it a step further, I wondered at the efficacy of using blood to save the life of another person:

Could blood from a healthy person pull a dying person back from the brink? Could it strengthen a weak constitution? I considered whether or not a person could subsist on a diet of mostly blood...human or animal. And, what happens to someone who develops such a taste, so much so, that it’s like an addiction? This line of questioning solidified Prince Amalric’s character: He was a weakling as a child and was fed blood to fortify him. He came to crave it as a youngster, often de-

betrayal and comeuppance. It depicts how one person’s choices can cause the downfall of a family, and in this case, a kingdom.

Author Kelly A. Harmon

Czarnina (Blood Soup) Ingredients: 5-6 lb duck OR 3-5 lb spare ribs 1 gallon water 2 bay leaves 4 whole cloves 4 whole peppercorns 4 T flour (Add more if a thicker soup is desired.) 1 T sugar 2 T salt 2 T pepper 1/2 c vinegar 1 c sweet cream or whipping cream Fresh Apples, Pears or both. (Peel, core and chop into pieces less than 1/2 inch.) Dried fruit: 1/2 lb pitted prunes and 1/2 lb raisins 32 oz prune juice with pulp Directions: •

In a soup kettle, cover meat with water and boil slowly for 1-3 hours depending on the size of the duck.

Add fruit to soup. Boil until apples or pears are soft.

Remove meat and spice bag from soup.

Reserve meat to be added back later.

In a separate bowl, blend the flour, sugar, salt and pepper into 1/2 c of prune juice.

Add cream to the flour mixture, the mixture should be a light paste.

Add the 1 cup of hot soup stock and mix until smooth.

While soup is still boiling, add flour mixture and remaining prune juice.

Stir constantly.

If a thicker soup is desired, add 1 c of pureed prunes.

Boil for another 5-10 minutes.

Meat may be returned to the soup.

Taste and adjust seasoning.

Allow to cool and place in refrigerator. Let the soup stand overnight before serving.

Skim off foam from top of soup.

Place spices in cheese cloth bag and add to soup.

Because of the raisins, prunes and fruit, the soup will be sweeter the next day.
