Black Pudding Starter

Serves 2


  • 200g Pudding (we used Jack McCarthy’s Pudding – which was served to Queen Elizabeth on her recent visit to Dublin)
  • 2 x Apples (cored and sliced roughly)
  • 150ml Cream
  • 50ml Whiskey or brandy
  1. In a hot Pan, sear the black pudding slices and ensure the pudding is warmed through.
  2. Set aside on a serving plate to rest.
  3. Meanwhile in the same pan, fry the apples on a high heat until slightly browned on the outside (approx 2 mins).
  4. Place the apples over the pudding and again in the same pan, add the cream and the whisky.
  5. Reduce over a medium heat until thickened a little – pour over the pudding and apples and serve.
