I've just got back from a long weekend in Scotland, and have brought with me a giant black pudding from a recommended butchers.

What are some exciting things I can do with it?

Not very imaginative but the only way to eat it is to slice it and stick it under a very hot grill with some bacon until they both crisp up and serve it with bubble and squeak and loads of Worcestershire sauce.

White pudding is the evil thigh of the devil. Never part with money on open your mouth for it.

Our local posh deli does black pudding scotch eggs and black pudding sausage rolls.

Well, OP, if you'd have mentioned that sooner, I'd have been round aaages ago. How are you cooking the white pudding?

(I know. Living vicariously...)

Mini, that's the wrongest thing I've read on MN this evening. Amongst a whole world of wrongness!

Sorry to have upset you Honkhonk, but it has to be that way.

The white pudding was a present given to us a while back, so it's still in the fridge, unopened. Can I do do different things with a white pudding than I would with a black?

I love courgette, chili and black pudding pasta. The black pudding has to have been previously cooked and allowed to go cold otherwise it doesn't crumble properly and is too gooey, I usually use what's left over after Sunday brunch.

Cut a courgette or two into matchsticks
Finely chop about quarter of a chili per person (I buy it chopped and frozen)
Crumble or finely dice about a slice and a half/two slices of black pudding per person

Fry the courgette in olive oil, add chili after a bit. When the courgette is nearly cooked stir in the black pudding, allow to fry some more for a couple of minutes. Stir into pasta.

There's something amazing about the mixture of the bitter-sweet of courgette, umami of black pudding and the heat of chili. It's one of those synergistic things.

Slices roasted in the oven, put in a wholemeal toasted sandwich with sausage, mushrooms and brown sauce. As served by the caff near the old Pools building near Woodside in Birkenhead.
