What is Black Pudding
It is a dark almost black sausage made from blood mixed with fat and oatmeal along with seasoning and some spices that will vary with different producers and regional cuisines. Typically the sausage can be cut into rounds, or crumbled into small pieces then boiled, fried or grilled . As well as traditional British black pudding, similar blood sausages are served across the world – French ‘boudin noir’ and Spanish ‘morcilla’ being two well-known examples.
You can find Black Puddings in all areas from the Market Stall to the very best restaurants or making appearances with chefs such as Rick Stein, Simmon Rimmer, Heston Blumenthal.
The Bury Black Pudding
The Bury Type is considered to be one of the most traditional forms. During the mid to late 1800’s, there were a lot of pudding makers in Bury, some actually producing in their own houses. Bury soon became a hot spot for the sausage and is still famous for it to this day. Every Butchers shop sold Black Puddings all using slight variations of the Bury recipe, Bury market still has a reputation for these puddings.
The defining factor of a Bury pudding is the recipe and ones from The Real Lancashire Black Pudding Company are made using one that has been handed down through generations and dates back to 1879.
