White and Black Pudding.


This weekend I have been introduced for the first time to a new dish. My very generous visitor from Ireland brought me something called white and black pudding. When he told me about it at first, I though he was talking about some sort of a desert. Like a vanilla-chocolate pudding. Imagine my surprise when this pudding turned out to be a meat dish. Although similar to some of the meat I have been served as a child when growing up in Eastern Europe, this was still a very new experience to me. I was told that you either prefer the black or the white and that it is usually served with rashes, eggs, sausages, beans and toast as a traditional English or Irish breakfast. Well, it seems that I prefer the black pudding. Additionally I have to say that now I have found yet another Irish addiction.

Oh, one way we are NOT alike! Black pudding (served widely in Scotland as well) makes me heave. When I was little (OK, and sometimes now), I called it 'fried poop'. Ick. My whole family loves it but it makes me lose my appetite!

Hope your weekend has been lovely! Enjoy your week!

LOL Diane! Yes, I was told that apparently most people prefer the white pudding.;) I have always had an odd taste when it comes to food.
My weekend was very nice, but way to short! Thanks for asking.;)
