Food Fare: Irish RecipesDrisheen

Black Pudding

Strain blood through a sieve. In a large bowl, mix blood with water, milk, breadcrumbs, minced suet and salt. Set aside and allow to stand for about one hour; bread will swell and mixture will thicken. Use a funnel to pack mixture into intestines or casings; tie-off at 12-inch lengths. Bring a large pot of water to a boil; add stuffed casings and cook for about forty minutes or until cooked through and solid. Remove casings from water and set aside until completely cooled. Cut into 1/2-inch thick slices; fry in a skillet with hot lard or oil on both sides until crisp and cooked through.


Note: Drisheen is traditionally served with bacon, eggs and fried potatoes or potato cakes. It is also a common element of the Ulster Fry (full breakfast).
