1 small onion, diced

1 carrot, diced

1 cup seedless raisins

8 dried prunes

blood from duck

2 tablespoon vinegar

1 pint sour cream

1/2 cup flour

salt and pepper to taste

Cover duck with about 4 quarts of water in a 6 quart kettle. Add onion, celery, apple, carrot, raisins, and prunes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Cook until meat is tender, about 1 to 1-1/2 hours over low heat. Remove meat to thicken suop. Combine cream, blood, and flour together and stir into slightly cooled soup. Be sure soup is cooled or else the thickening will curdle. Cook for 5 minutes to thicken. Add sugar and vinegar to taste, one tablespoon at a time, until you get the right sweet and sour taste. Remove prunes and half of raisins. Strain for clear broth. Add meat back in and serve.
