As an overnight visitor to the island you may have had “The Fry” which is a Full Irish Breakfast. One of the key components is Black Pudding also known as Blood Sausage, an acquired taste for some.

Black Pudding maybe used as a delicious starter for dinner. The piquant flavor of the pudding with the sweetness of the apples, and a dash of wholegrain mustard and honey will enhance the flavor and surprise all.


What you need:

Serves 4.

2 medium red apples

1 black pudding 200grams

2 teaspoons of wholegrain mustard

1 teaspoon of honey

2 tablespoons of sunflower oil

a pinch of salt

Juice of 1 lemon

Peel , core and quarter apples placing apples in the lemon juice to stop them turning brown.

Cut pudding in 4 equal portions and grill on a medium heat for 4-6 minutes turning so each side is cooked evenly. Place apples, oil, mustard and honey in a pan on a medium flame and gently fry until slightly brown but not soft. Remove pudding from grill and place on a place topped with the apples and contents of the pan with mustard and oil and serve.

Enjoy. An Aran memory for dinner.
