    I had home-made blood sausage on a farm in Austria many years ago. Quite different to black pudding or sausage. It was moist, not dry and crumbly. You weren't supposed to eat the casing - it was intestine from the same pig. I will eat British/Irish blood sausage, but I prefer the Austrian one.

    Haggis is great, as long as it isn't too liverish.

    Not just in a fry-up either (much though I love it):

    Pan-seared scallops, black pudding and crisp, smoked streaky bacon. Pure nectar !

    I'm a fan. Jews have a similar dish called kishka (or stuffed derma). Black pudding is similar in taste and the texture is common to both although kishka is more bread than oat based and of course, no pork products. Although it's been a few years since I've had an English breakfast in England, I've no doubt I'd enjoy having it again. Not a haggis fan.

    I don't imagine the Jewish version has blood in it, either. Haggis is best when served with the potatoes and mashed rutabagas, or with a similar sweet and starchy vegies. Onions, potatoes, and carrots work too.

    Well, the Brazilians in the northeast have buchada de bode, a haggis-like thing made from a goat's or lamb's stomach, plus all the other internal bits they aren't quite sure what to do with and would otherwise be turned into cat food. No, I've never tried it.

    I’ve only ever associated black pudding with Irish Breakfast so it’s interesting to see how wide spread it actually is. I’m aware that it is also considered an English thing but have never known a Brit who’d go near it, my wife or any of her extended family included (who bye the way all seem to associate it more with an Irish breakfast as well.....).

    Right you are but they still have similar flavor and texture. Bunch of junk stuffed into a casing.

    Good, though Irish sausages of all sorts seem a bit mild and lacking in spice. Most places put it on the bill of fare, but one usually has to request it, as they're accustomed to finicky sorts who've not tried it leaving it on the plate. At one place on Upper Goat Street in Dingle Town, I had black pudding, white pudding, sausages, ham, and rashers all on one plate: about half a pig, I reckon. Along with the fried eggs, beans and brown bread and all.

    Wasn't able for lunch— my punishment for gluttony.

    I've actually had it in Vietnamese food, too. Put in enough hot peppers, I can eat almost anything. And in Costa Rica they have a soup called mondongo with tripe; not my favorite, but it's not bad.

    I've had blood sausage, I've also had tripe. More than just once to say that I'd eaten it. But while living in Paris as a student, my favorite dinner was a nice thick slice of beef heart in gravy.

    Herself has evil childhood memories of eating tripe. I'd never had it before I met Herself, and she's resolutely not permitted it into the house in the time I've known her.

    Perhaps. She'd experienced it as an offal trial.

    In Ireland they poach tripe in milk with a smooth blood sausage called packet and chopped onions (the meal is creatively called 'Packet and Tripe') - the single most revolting thing I've ever eaten.


    Turns out its a Limerick thing - my home town.

    Black pudding, yes. I have a particular memory of black pudding and chips in Stornoway on a Saturday night in 1974.

    Tripe.. not so much.

    Before 1997, a group calling themselves the Tripehounds met for lunch every Thursday in the Hong Kong Club. The group consisted of the Governor, the Financial Secretary, the Chairman of the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank, the Taipans of Jardines and Swires and the Chief Justice. They met and lunched on tripe. The history was that at some point in the nineteen twenties the then Governor had spent the morning at the Legislative Council, was due to spend the afternoon the same way, and announced "I've had tripe all morning, I'll have tripe all afternoon, so I may as well have tripe for lunch!"

    Consequently the Club always had tripe on the menu on Thursdays. The Chinese like tripe. The Japanese, not so much. It happened that I was involved in building a series of ships at a Mitsubishi yard and my Japanese opposite number and I would meet alternately at his place and mine. Ken set out to see just what the limits to this gaijin's tolerance of the wilder shores of Japanese cuisine was. I decided that I had had enough and took him to lunch at the Club on a Thursday, insisting that he enjoy some traditional English cuisine... From then on it was Kobe beef for me, in Japan...

    An old yachting mate in NZ had a tradition: the last night at anchor he made tripe stewed in tomato sauce, that he'd learnt to cook in Italy, WWII with the British Marines. I fancied the stuff, but there were some greenish gills around the table. In the border states and in Mexico, I've had several varieties of menudo, which is a tripe stew in tomato sauce, usually with beans, garlic, onion, and heaps of hot red chile. It's sort of a guy thing: supposed to cure a hangover and/or put lead in your pencil.

    I grew up on a farm and have spent quite a bit of time off and on working on sheep and cattle stations in News South Wales and the Northern Territory and whenever we’d kill a beast for meat the first couple of meals would be the various offal’s that were worth eating, while the meat hung for a day.

    I can’t say that I enjoyed them all that much but one thing which I did come to enjoy while working on a cattle station was something that we called “milky gut” and which we’d cook in sort of stew sized pieces on the hot plate.

    I’d never heard of it as a child on the farm when dad would kill and hang a beast so it didn’t fit with my knowledge of offal at the time and I never really bothered to ask - in so far as sometimes it’s better not to know - but I gather it was the intestine.
