Black pudding is also known as blood sausage. It is made from…guess what? Blood. Curdled and boiled and usually from a pig, to be exact. The blood is mixed up nicely with chunks of pork, spices, onion, fat, and oatmeal, and then stuffed into a casing. Yum, right?
If you go to England and miss this meal, you will have missed an epicurean delight. It was at the top on our list.
