Recipe by  

Black Pudding or blood pudding is a type of sausage made by cooking blood or dried blood with a filler until it is thick enough to congeal when cooled. It is also called blood sausage (Blutwurst) in some countries. There are many country and regional variations but pig or cattle blood is most often used (sheep and goat blood to a lesser extent). Typical fillers include meat, fat, suet, bread, sweet potato, onion, chestnuts, barley, and oatmeal.

How to Cook Black Pudding (Blood Pudding)

  1. METHOD ONE - Preparing and cooking slices of Black Pudding:

    Cut two or three slices of black pudding about ½" (1cm) thick. Heat the fat in a frying pan then add the black pudding slices. Cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side over a medium heat. Serve as part of a fried breakfast or brunch.
  2. METHOD TWO - Preparing and cooking whole Black Pudding:

    This is suitable if you want to eat black pudding as the main course and if you can obtain whole black puddings about 8" long by 1½" diameter (20cm x 4cm). Prick the pudding several times with a fork to allow fat to escape. Heat the fat in a frying pan then add the whole black pudding. Cook on medium heat for about 8-10 minutes, turning the pudding frequently. Serve with either heated ready-made stewed apple from a shop or (much better) with Meester Graham's delicious Apple and Honey Slices.

If you've never done it before, eating black pudding as a main course may seem a little strange, but I can assure you that the 'experiment' will be well worth the effort. But PLEASE try the Apple and Honey slices too!

I was right - the bacon is huge! I served a couple of slices of bacon (three for my boyfriend) along with a whole black pudding each and lashings of apple and honey slices and it was mega! For us, this one is a real keeper.

My boyfriend and I tried whole black puddings with the recipe for the apple and honey slices and it was really, really good. Very simple but very satisfying and tasty too. What would be really nice with it (which I'll probably try next time) is a couple of slices of bacon. I can imagine the saltiness of the bacon and the sweetness of the apple, and I'm convinced it would work.
