           Salt to taste
    1/4 ts Marjoram
      3    Carrots, sliced thin

  A: Meat Ingredients
  When the young goat is killed, have the butcher drain off the blood
  and save it in a container. Wash the carcass, cut off the lower legs,
  tail, etc., and cut the kid into conveniently sized serving pieces,
  roughly about the size of a half chicken. Place the meat in a pot
  with garlic and salt. Cover with cold water and boil for one hour.
  Stretch a triple thickness of cheesecloth, or a tea towel, over the
  top of the pot. Pour in the blood, allowing the cloth to contain the
  congealed element. Draw the ends together, tie with a string, drop
  into the pot liquid, and boil for 10 minutes. Remove the cloth
  containing the congealed blood, and force the blood through a fine
  sieve or strainer. Remove the meat from the pot, drain, and brown in
  a large skillet in very hot lard. Add the mashed blood, comino seeds,
  marjoram and sliced carrots. Add 1/2 cup of the water in which the
  goat meat was cooked. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, and add
  the following ingredients to complete the sauce, as directed.

  Place olive oil, wine, peppercorns, chili powder, Tabasco, salt,
  cloves, bay leaves, marjoram, garlic, sugar, vinegar, chopped
  peppers, and chopped onions in a saucepan. Simmer over a low flame
  for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the chocolate paste,
  stirring constantly as the mixture boils for about 3 minutes. Add the
  flour paste and chopped pimientos, stirring until the ingredients
  C: Combination and serving:
  Add the sauce ingredients to the meat, blood and other contents of the
  skillet (You will have to use 2 or 3 skillets for this quantity) Stir
  well until all ingredients are thoroughly blended. This should take 2
  or 3 minutes. Serve on individual plates garnished with watercress,
  cubes of fresh pineapple, chilled seedless grapes, white radishes and
  string beans. Orange sections dipped in powdered sugar make a good
  addition. With this dish serve either tortillas or tostados, a green
  salad wit a simple oil and vinegar dressing, and beer, preferably a
