On The Trail Of Blood Boudin In Rural Louisiana

This past weekend we ventured deep into the heart of rural Louisiana to find the fabled "blood boudin" or boudin rouge as the Cajun French call it.
 
Success was met in Cottonport Louisiana at T-Jim's, a little French grocery that opened in 1964. Here's the tale with plenty pics (not for the squeamish, we were there on production day)

    You have to stop at Boudin King in Jennings. I hear it is fantastic.

    Boudin King is not what it used to be. The recipe has changed in the last few years and not for the better.  There is more rice than meat, and the overall flavor is lacking.
     
    If in Jennings, Cormier's Specialty Meats on Allison St is the place to go.  Wonderful boudin, mouth watering smoked brisket, and LOTS more.

    Hey Scrumpy - The Boudin Rouge at Babineaux's Slaughterhouse in Breaux Bridge is OUTSTANDING - dark and dense and earthy.

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news but Babineaux is no longer in daily operation. They had a note tacked to their door that said they're only dressing animals now, no longer running a full service operation.
