Red pudding is a Scottish meat dish that is sold as a snack in chip shops. Commercial varieties of these puddings are also available and are exported all over the world.
Red Pudding Recipe Overview
The dish is made by binding cooked bacon, pork meat, pork rind, beef, lard or suet, together with powdered rusks. Flavoring ingredients like cumin, beef stock, garlic, salt and pepper are added to the meat base. The red coloring is due to the port wine that is added to the meat mix but food grade coloring is also added to commercial meat base. The resulting meat mix is then shaped into sausage shaped rods that are approximately 15 cm long and 3.5 cm in diameter.
Serving Red Pudding
Most chip shops just dip the prepared meat into a batter of flour and then deep fry the sausage. This is then served with fries as a substitute to fish and chips.
