Default Black Pudding.

Having promised the Mrs. a traditional English/Irish Christmas breakfast I now find my self short of Black Pudding.

If anyone knows as to where this item may be purchased in southern California (preferably the San Diego County area) I would be most grateful.

Thanking you in advance for your time and wishing you all the best during the holidays.

Cheers.

SC.

Thank you for the swift response and for posting the exact address.

I didn't relish the idea of walking around Hillcrest asking for the Sausage King!

Unexpected conversation I just had at work: Woman from another department who I’ve rarely spoken to approached me as I was making my customary mid-afternoon cuppa and said: “I hear you’re the only other person in the office besides me who likes blood sausage”. Turns out she grew up in some part of Scandinavia where they can’t get enough of it, and had been wondering if people would eat it if she brought some to next week’s pot luck office holiday lunch. Her departmental admin assistant apparently told her “Well elfman will appreciate it, he loves it” – because I think I once told her (about six years ago) that black pudding is a traditional component of a big cooked breakfast in some parts of Britain. The truth is I have eaten it on occasion and it’s ok, but now I’m slightly concerned that she’s going to bring some in next week and expect me to eat a shitload of it in front of an audience of co-workers.

It depends on how you replied to her opening salvo...if you agreed that you like it, you may well have to eat your words. If you suggested that you're familiar with it but it isn't your favourite then you may be okay...

That's basically how I left it - but then I told admin lady essentially the same thing....

...or just tell her that you prefer it fried. Assuming you don't have the ability to fry foodstuffs in you work place you should be okay.
Having said that, if it is already cooked it could be like watching an episode of 'Man Vs food'!

Ah, but she had six years to misremember it.

Bury is a town in Lancashire, in north west England. In the town is one of the most famous of markets - Bury Market - which has the reputation of selling the best black puddings you can find anywhere on the surface of this planet. Many people think black puddings are an acquired taste, but no Sunday morning whacking great fry-ups are complete without black pudding.....a couple of rashers of best back bacon, sausages, baked beans, grilled tomatoes, mushrooms, fried eggs (or scrambled if you prefer), fried bread - and a couple of slices of black pudding, all washed down with a steaming hot mug of Yorkshire tea or, if you prefer - a similarly steaming mug of Douwe Egberts freshly filtered coffee. All followed by slices of hot buttered granary toast and Dundee marmalade.

Everytime we go to this local bar I can't help but giggle childishly at the 'Sausage Party' dish
