    Forgotten Foods: Getting Them Back on the Table



    Black pudding made from fresh blood may not be something you think is worth fighting for, but it is part of the battle to bring Britain's forgotten food back into supermarkets and our homes.

    It's not your average culinary dilemma, but then again it's not the average ingredient. How do you transport fresh pigs' blood quickly enough to make black pudding before the blood coagulates?

    This is just one of the challenges facing a growing movement of people trying to revive the country's forgotten foods and, most significantly, get them back into supermarkets.

    In recent years there has been a growing appreciation of Britain's distinctive regional foods. Many people have embraced farm shops, farmers' markets and specialist shops.

    I'm not particularly fond of Black pudding, but the rediscovery of our own "ethnic" food is great news nonetheless .

    I like Black Pudding. Black pudding is not EXACTLY the same as our german Blutwurst, but it's close enough if you are homesick. If we krauts can manage to make it before the blood coagulates, why can't the english?

    We eat blood pudding here too, usually with some syrup on it. Norway is lucky, we have no trichinella spiralis parasites, but every pig is checked anyway.

    Small farmer's markets etc. are good, but prices tend to be a bit higher than super markets. It's very good that food from local areas are available, so we don't have to import for all over.

    Ours is flavoured with cloves. With fried (fresh) bacon and fried cinnamon spiced apple slices, it's delicious.

    I think I've had it before, not sure If I liked it.
    This is great news though, hopefully more food will have a rediscovery too.
