Black Pudding :
This great flavoured Black Pudding has the smooth texture as the White Pudding because of the way that we ensure we use only the best pork cuts that are properly trimmed before being minced. Once minced the other ingredients are then blended into the fresh Pork Mince before running all the mixture through for a final time.
The White Pudding is then filled into a natural casing making large long-familiar rings, these are then left to set up overnight to make sure the ingredients mix with the meat. They are then cooked thoroughly in clean filtered water until they become firm to touch, & then set into the chillers to cool down. After this, we cut into sections of 150-grams & pack 2 into a vacuum-sealed clear recyclable pouch.
Having a balanced diet is very important & quality pork is a great source of vitamins, minerals & protein. Using the lean pork shoulder is best because it has the richest source of all these. Black Pudding may not be the healthiest of products, but you can be sure that the best lean pork goes into it to guarantee the best flavour.

The double-layer box, with extra cardboard, the reflective liner & the “Gel Packs” at (-18°C) keeping your order very cold.
All our meats are cut in temperature-controlled, clean & safe environments to make the freshest cuts possible for home or restaurant deliveries. The clean filtered, chilled air in production limits any exposure to natural bacteria in the air, the low temperatures help prevent the meat from losing any of its natural juices. The clear recyclable pouches keep all the natural flavours in the meat, it also protects the Black Pudding when stored at -18, during delivery to your home & so it can be stored safely in your fridge or freezer.
Our choice of pork is something we have carefully considered, as we find this makes exactly what our customers need for specification, flavour & taste.
There are many breeds of pigs in the world, each with different characteristics, some large fatty ones, to small very lean types. Our choice of pig is the Pietrain Pig because it is a low cholesterol breed that has fantastic meat to fat ratio that has excellent flavour with guaranteed results in the kitchen.
Having access to a large volume of a good grade, perfect sized pork sides to choose from on a daily basis enables us to create the consistent “Restaurant Quality” pork cuts that people have come to expect from the Sherwood brand. We have daily delivery of pigs to the production facilities from long-standing local countryside farms in Belgium & Northern France.
Our select breed of pigs gets the name Pietrain from the small village of “Pietrain” in the Wallonia region of Belgium where they mainly originated from.
Black Pudding is a popular in Scotland, Northern UK, Ireland & Iceland to name but a few places & is often served as part of a fried breakfast.
The best way to cook the Black Pudding is to cut into 2 cm thick slices before placing in a frying pan with a little oil too prevent sticking or grill these slices evenly on both sides. The cooking times for Black Pudding slices are approximately 2-4 minutes each side. The easy to slice texture is just like a pork sausage & has the same bite to it where you can taste the different ingredients for a real tasty addition to any fry.
We have seen people cooking Black Pudding on the BBQ as part of their cook outside meals & the meat loves the smokey aromas & gives this a slightly different appeal.
