Kaszanka (or kiszka) is a traditional blood sausage in Polish cuisine. It is made of a mixture of pig's blood, pig offal (commonly liver, lungs, skin, and fat), and buckwheat (sometimes barley or rice) kasza stuffed in a pig intestine. It is usually flavored with onion, black pepper, and marjoram.

The Polish kaszanka sausage

The name kaszanka is derived from kasza (groats), one of the main ingredients, as the German name Grützwurst is derived from Grütze, with the same meaning.

Kaszanka may be eaten cold, but traditionally it is either grilled or fried with some onions and then served with potato and sauerkraut.
