Delicacies of Horse-Flesh
For serving the table:
- From the carcass of the slaughtered horse the ribs with flesh are cut off and the blood is let trickle down for 5–7 hours. The guts are washed well and kept in salt water for 1–2 hours. The slightly dried up kazy are cut in strips along the ribs: the brand kazy are cut in narrow strips and the narrow ones - in broad strips. The interrib tissue should be cut with a shapp knife removing cartilages and without crumbling the fat. Then the meat is salted and peppered, finely cut garlic is added and the meat is wrapped up in a napkin for 2–3 hours.
- Then kazy are put in guts the ends of which are tied up. After this kazy can be dried, boiled and smoked. It is better to dry kazy by warm weather hanging them out for a week in a sunny aired place.
