Our butchers tips

Only a handful of people produce traditional, fresh blood black pudding. The rest use imported dried blood powder.

Fresh blood black pudding is so rare you have probably never bought or tasted it before. Ours is a sumptuous mix of fresh blood, oats, pearl barley, onions, fat and spices. Grill or fry….get the outside crunchy and serve.

It’s an International Award Winner and a Great Taste 2014 winner.

Fresh blood black pudding fell out of favour during the BSE crisis when a ban was put on harvesting the blood. It has now become too difficult for the larger producers in the UK to source fresh blood in significant quantities and there is not a UK source of dried blood. Producers now rely on imports of dried blood to make their black puddings.

We are lucky to work with the Fruit Pig Company who have a consistent supply of fresh blood from a local slaughterhouse and so are able to make their black puddings in a traditional way as butchers used to.

Black pudding is great for breakfast and pairs perfectly with eggs. The flavours of the pudding pair well with a variety of different foods, but bacon and black pudding must be a match made in heaven!

Also available as a gluten free version.

  1. 5 out of 5

    I grew up in Lancashire in the 1950s and 1960s and one of my early memories is of Oldham’s Tommyfield Market, a genuine old fashioned outdoor market. There were several stalls that sold black pudding and it was a common sight to see people eating it as they walked around the market. It had an almost creamy texture and was not over seasoned. Today’s black puddings, even the so called ‘Award Winning’ ones, are a pale shadow of that, I suspect because of food safety laws that mean most black pudding is produced from blood powder that comes from so many sources that nobody can attest to its provenance. The Fruit Pig Fresh Blood Black Pudding is, without doubt, the best I have ever tasted by a country mile. It has that creamy texture I remember along with a taste that just bursts with flavour without having any one key ingredient dominating. If you love good food you really must try this black pudding: you will not regret it, I promise.
