    But of course.
    This from Bury is the best.

    Notice the lumps of fat for flavour.
    Good fried for breakfast, deep fried in batter with chips as street food after a beer or three, and in a hot pot.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    What's with the green thing?

    Black pudding goes well on top of toast and under cheese.

    Can you get the white or mealy puddings?

    I prefer a clooty dumpling to mealy pudding, which was becoming rare even in Glasgow when I was there in the '60s.

    With aplomb? No. No. THIS is a proper BritBreakfast. No fruits nor veggies allowed. Unless they've been boiled or stewed to within an inch of their lives <G>

    I've had black pudding only once. On my honeymoon. Served for breakfast at friend's of friend's home (British expats) in Washington D.C. My only memory is thinking how delicious it was. If I had it again, I imagine the memory of the actual taste would come charging back.

    Some of my closest friends are Irish. Yes, like born in Ireland. Their folks are both gone, now, but when we used to go over to eat, there was a rule we were told:
    If there isnít two kinds of potatoes and three kinds of meat on the table, get up, because Mom didnít cook it. It held true all the years I knew them.
    Both boys who are my friends (there are 5 boys, 2 are close friends) married Mexican girls, though, so the food paradigm has changed. Hehe.

    Definitely! Although the Central American equivalent is 'If it doesn't have rice and beans with it, it's not food'.

    Me? Heck no, Pard. I am in great shape because I eat a ton of fat and a ton of veggies and fruits. I eat very little, but I eat high quality calories when I do.

    Fried eggs? Oh, yes please.

    Does blood sausage need to be boiled before being put up for sale?

    Sausages are sold raw or dried/cured, puddings are always boiled by the butcher before sale.

    I regret the fact that most people don't realise it is already cooked and go on to completely incinerate it the frying pan.

    Google seems to suggest that they are all poached, so sausage/pudden is interchangeable.

    I don't think black pudding is legal here.

    We do have chocolate, vanilla, and banana pudding though.
