TASTE: Carpathian witch's spicy holubtsi with menstrual blood

From a witch's hovel in the Carpathian mountains...

This recipe is for gaining the eternal love of your unwed partner. Follow the instructions judiciously...

Ingredients:
4 drops of fresh menstrual blood
1 lb. of ground pork
2 onions, chopped (1 cup)
3-4 carrots, grated (2 cups)
1 cup of white rice
1/2 chili pepper, diced
3 cloves of garlic, diced
1 head of ripe cabbage
1/2 cup of tomato sauce
3 tbs. sunflower oil
bay leaf, salt/pepper, fresh chopped parsley

Step one: prepare the cabbage and filling.

A. Steam the cup of rice until it is approximately half cooked, cool with cold water and then set it aside.

B. Combine the vegetables in a pan and lightly fry until the onions are caramelized. Season as desired.

C. At the same time boil approximately 20 soft inner leaves from the head of cabbage until they are transparent.

D. Finally, mix together the steamed rice with the raw meat and 1/2 of the vegetables for the filling. Set aside the other half of the vegetables.

Step two: place a few heaping tablespoons of the filling onto the bottom of each boiled leaf. Fold over the vertical edges and then roll them up like an egg roll or burrito.

Step three: place the cabbage rolls in a large sauce pan. Cover the rolls in tomato sauce and add the other half of the fried vegetables, four drops of fresh menstrual blood, bay leaf and chopped parsley. Add about 1/4 cup of water, cover and let the rolls simmer for about 45 minutes.

Serve with sauce on top, on the night of a full moon to your intended lover...
