White Pudding is an Irish/Scottish/English sausage that consist mainly of fat, grains, flour, leeks, and milk. The recipe for this sausage varies depending on where you go. It can contain pork, pork trimmings, beef, or just fat as in this recipe. Even the grains can vary from oatmeal to pearl barley.
Our slices contain less than 3% fat and our rings less than 7%. Don't be fooled by all those specks of white you see in the pudding when you slice it open, most of those are grains of barley.
Black pudding, and other 'blood cakes' from around the world such as ti-hoeh-koe from Taiwan, are banned in US due to sanitary reasons.
