Stay with me on this one because I need a couple of lines of explanation.
Firstly, let’s understand one thing, there is ONLY way to eat black pudding and that is to BOIL it!
That’s right, BOIL it!.
Whoever the hell first thought it a good idea to fry it was clearly from some cretinous sub-culture.
And what traditionally is a black pudding made from?
Pigs blood, Pig Rind, Oatmeal, Barley and mixed herbs all inside Pig’s intestine.
Traditionally, this is made into a Black Pudding Ring.
(You can also get them as ‘Sticks’ and ‘Chubs’).
So what is the whinge?
In the absence of the ‘real thing’ I have been eating a passable interpretation from Sainsburys.
However, they appear to have changed their supplier!
The new one omits the Barley, the Oats, and the Pig Rind has been replaced with lumps of lard.
In desperation, I succumbed to the ultimate sacrilige and FRIED it!
BIG MISTAKE, because they had swapped the Intestine with PLASTIC!
That’s NOT a Black Pudding, it’s shit.
