I just wondered how many people actually eat it. I personally can't stand it, not that I have ever tasted it. I won't cook it either. If DH cooks it, then I won't eat anything that might have touched the black pudding. DS loves it, but DD won't eat it, then again, she is a fussy little eater anyway.

It is delish!

You have to buy it from a proper butcher's though.

Being a northern lass, it was a fairly regular item on the menu. Disgusting stuff.

i was brought up in ireland and we ate it all the time but I didn't know what it was and I loved it Haven't had it for years

yum! ks, tell your dh it's called boudin noir in france and morcilla in spain - so it's not just some weird northern thing!

Try white pudding - that's even worse.

I generally love it but not at the moment (pregnancy sickness )

noddyholder Mon 07-Feb-05 19:20:20

what is the white one have seen it but never tasted it

I think it's ok in small doses and as long as I try not to think about what it is!!

Yummy although it amuses me when i get to order it in a posh restaurant - Heathcotes do an excellent one. I once even stopped in a health spa and was greatly amused to be able to order black pudding with my fry up!!!

isnt that just rough sausage with white skin

marthamoo Mon 07-Feb-05 19:22:58

Yuk. And that's not because I care what it's made of - it just tastes disgusting.

Tetley Mon 07-Feb-05 19:23:56

Yuck yuk yuk (although dh would disagree - he loves it!)

Another yukky thing I used to be fed by MIL was liver. I don't think it tastes bad, just the look and feel of it before it is cooked was enough to put me off!

Amanda3266 Mon 07-Feb-05 19:24:39

White pudding - made with meal and liver. EEEwwwwww!!

RudyDudy Mon 07-Feb-05 19:25:08


Almost as bad as Mrm*t!

We have a fab one here - Clonakilty - it is absolutely delicious in a salad with some apple sauce - used to hate it but then fiddled with recipes and it is fab
