This is a listing of various blood substitutes that I have found from various sources. If you are a sanguinarian and you can’t find a donor, or you are trying to find temporary relief for the “hunger”, these may help.
Blood (Preferably beef, as it is much safer than pig or poultry blood)
Wine (strong red wine)
A clean, empty milk jug
A cheesecloth or other clean thin cloth (for straining)
As for getting the blood, look in your Yellow Pages for local, privately-owned butcher shops. Call first and ask if they sell blood. (Tell them you’re making blood pudding or something if they ask.) Once you know if they sell it, and the price, arrange to have a pick-up.
Take the cloth and place it into the funnel. Don’t clog the bottom. Tape it or use a rubber band to secure it. Insert it into the mouth of the jug, and slowly pour in the blood. Remove the funnel, and add the wine. The ration should be about 1:2 of blood:wine. Remove the cloth from the funnel, rinse, and use the funnel to pour the mixture back into an empty wine bottle. Shake well and store in the coldest part of your refrigerator, but NOT in the freezer. Shake well each time before you drink.
This may not taste that great, but may satiate your cravings.

Other Blood Drinks
Use the same method as above, but try varying proportions of blood:vodka, blood:whiskey, or if you don’t drink alcohol, blood:V8.
A side note on these drinks: If you’re not the only person in the house that drinks wine, V8, whatever, be sure to label your bottles. You can always make an excuse that you have a cold and don’t want to spread your germs, or whatever excuse you can come up with.
Cooked with butter and onion. Some like to put it in a food processor and spread the resulting paste on toast.
Bananas, cantaloupe, watermelon, grapes.
Steak, roast, burgers and the like, seared on the outside, bloody in the middle. NEVER eat raw poultry or pork!
V8, Gatorade, tomato juice, green tea, peppers, raw fish/sushi, lamb blood, beef blood.
(Take care when consuming animal blood, there may be contaminants, hormones, parasites, etc. Always use caution, and small amounts.)
Gatorade, multi-vitamins, catsup and worcestershire
