Black pudding

Post by Poots »

Who's got a recommendation?
I was/am a big fan of Clonakilty but I visited a south coast Butcher who sold a triangle shaped version and it was the biz.
He claimed it was from somewhere near Liverpool but a quick search only revealed this outfit.
https://www.doreensblackpudding.com/sto ... -triangles
I'm tempted to go down that route.

All hail the Gonk.

They have to use powdered blood now according to something I watched a while back. Some stupid legislation.

A good black pudding is a rarity these days for me locally!

Stornoway Black pudding is legendary.
But if you ever get the chance Ness Black pudding (North of Stornoway) is probably better.

Used to like black pudding til I read a story in the paper of an old butcher who would take a huge bowl of pigs' blood, take a sup out it, then season it with salt and pepper and keep tasting til he was happy with it.

There's only 2 Black puddings that I rate.

Bury and Stornoway.

I've tried loads from all over and IMHO, these 2 rate the very best.

I'm not overly keen on the Liverpool pudding as it's too coarse, with overly sized lumps of fat.

If there is one thing English shouldn't make it is black pudding. There is no good reason for great big chunks of fat in it.

Another one is square sausage.

That one is probably what caused all your health issues and put you in hospital Dave.

I speak from experience as there was a short period in my Fire Service days when we used to have competitions on the watch to see how quickly we could eat a dry Pot Noodles without taking a drink.
My record was 1 and a bit without taking a drink. A mere lightweight.
Many a bad gut after those comps.
The dry shredded wheat eating comps weren't much better. Groan face!

There's hardly any salt to worry about in Pot Noodles now anyway. Add a splash of thai fish sauce to make them taste like they used to :thumbs:

Defo aint what they used to be. I mind in the 90's the liquid left over felt like a hearty drink. I might be thinking back with rose tinted glasses though. They took all the good bad stuff out :laughs:
