  1. Black pudding was unfairly mocked and ignored for too long – it’s delicious. But now it is gaining popularity, the pre-packed plastic horrors are becoming far too prevalent. Go for the real thing from your butchers!

    Many small quality butcher’s produce there own recipe black pudding, try a few different one’s and find your favourite, The Blue Pig company make a great homemade pudding. The Black Pudding at The Angel @ Hetton is also very good as long as you don’t mind a few bit’s of dried fruit!


  3. I can’t wait to taste this! Great recipe by the way!
