Recently sailed on an international cruise and had my first exposure to black pudding. I must say, it was so scrumptious that I had multiple portions on multiple days.

Does anyone know what is traditionally included in the recipe?

If you ever get a chance, try stornoway black pudding. It really is out of this world.

I’m a bit dubious about black pudding outside Scotland though as it never usually tastes like the real thing.

Glad you enjoyed it!

I don't think you would want to know what's in it! and it's not the easiest thing to make yourself, but I agree tastes delicious

    I love Black Pudding, I never think about whats in it, If I did I wouldnt eat most things:rotfl2:
    It was SO good though. I only tried it to see what it tasted like and the consistency and, based on that alone, it was one of the best breakfast items I've ever had.

    Hi

    Like sausages you never ask whats in Black Pudding, just be happy that you like it and I#m sure it's good for you.

    By the way we call sausages "mystery bags"

    Black pudding and its counterpart, white pudding are meat based products, made with blood and offal, fillers such as breadcrumbs and rusks, herbs, spices and other flavourings.

    They are mainly a breakfast item, served as part of a fried breakfast, along with eggs, bacon, sausages etc. Different regions and areas in UK and Ireland have their own variations of the breakfast fry.

    Black and white pudding may also be served in an all day breakfast or mixed grill, for lunch or dinner.

    Like sausages, you can get the mass produced brands in supermarkets which have ranges from the cheap and cheerful to premium. Usually the cheaper the brand, the more fillers such as breadcrumbs are used and the flavouring , herbs and spices would be of the low quality. Then you have the fresh made in butchers and fine dining restaurants which would be made using more high quality ingredients to unique and individual recipes.

    Again like sausages, peoples preference usually reflect the brand or type they can afford, and can easily buy.

    In Ireland, the two most popular brands availalable to buy in supermarkerkets are

    Denny Black Pudding, 199g roll costs €1.59 approx

    The best black pudding I have ever eaten have been made by independent butchers and goodness me they were delicious.. DH isn’t keen but I love it. It stems from old recipes that household cooks would buy from the butchers shop they used to use to make sure every part of an animal that was slaughtered was used as much as possible.. although saying that I can’t abide tripe🤮that’s just nasty and stinks so bad that rotten eggs smell better.

    Black pudding isn't even a Scottish food! It is from Lancashire in England.
