Uganda: steamed blood for dinner

How about steamed blood for dinner?, “I think that is quite an overexcited statement. I lost my motivation on page 85 when I found this recipe on how to cook a dish called ‘steamed blood':
* ½ litre of blood
* ½ teaspoon salt
* Drain the plasma from the solid blood. Add salt. Place the blood in a metallic container with a cover or wrap in a banana leaf. Steam for 30 minutes. Cut in nice dices and serve as a side dish,” writes a Danish development worker in Uganda.
