Default How do you cook a black pudding?

I am embarrassed to admit to being a northern lad and yet not knowing how to cook a black pudding.
I have eaten balck pudding most of my life in England, but it was always cooked by someone else. I found the butcher I buy my English bacon from also makes black puddings, so I ordered 2.
I promised a few colleagues I'd take some to work for them to try, so how do I cook it.
I presume it should be cooked the same way as a sausage would be? That the product is raw and needs cooking, not just warming. Yeah a case of food poisoning may not be the breakfast my colleagues hoped for.

Answers on a serviette if you please . . .

I don't know where you'll get the blood from though
I tell the people who wanted me to make haggis to forget about it *yuck smilie*

Sorry for some reason I was reading it as you also wanted to make it from scratch !!
I'd better get my tea as lack of food is making me delusional

When you get them they are already cooked by boiling them. Otherwise they wouldn't bea very nice sight . To heat them I too would fry them.

But fry it in butter, not oil. Tastes even better.

Cut it into slices and fry it until it is has a crust on both sides. Have some tomato ketchup with it.

I have to agree with the southern tart, however once fried, crisp it up under the grill, best served with HP sauce, fried mushrooms, fried egg and fried bacon.

Make sure the ambulance service is on hand.

How to cook Black Pudding.......(or Blood Pudding in the US)

1. Cut into pieces (small discs about 5 to 10 cm thick)
2. Place in frying pan with butter.
3. Cook it until the white bits start to glisten and it gets crunchy
4. Remove and place on paper towel to sop up some of the grease
5. Call the EPA and have your home declared a natural disaster site.

About the only way this stuff is edible is with massive amounts of ketchup poured all over it.

Good luck with the divorce proceedings.......

Keep it. My people eat it too but I have never been able to even be around one, never mind actually eat it!

What did the colleagues say when they found out?
