Irish Black Pudding, Irish Food, Good Food Ireland

As the women of the small farmhouses of an Ireland of long ago created black pudding in their kitchens, using the by products of a home reared pig, they could never have known they were creating a traditional food that would win awards. This humble pudding made from pork fat and blood and sometimes oatmeal or barley, was originally made to sell at local markets, to supplement the income of the farm. It also fed the family as part of a traditional breakfast with home produced rashers and sausages.
