First, clean and wash inside and out one sheep's stomach. You may need to improvise a bit here. Sheep stomachs are not readily available down the shops.

In a bowl, mix 8 oz of suet, two chopped onions, 8 oz of oatmeal, and one pint of sheep or pig blood. This latter ingredient is vital to a black pudding recipe. Your local butcher may be able to help you out if you ask nicely. Just remember to explain what you the blood for.

Place the mixture in the stomach bag (a thick teatowel makes a good substitute) and then sew up both ends and boil gently for two and a half hours. Prick the bag, or teatowel, to prevent it filling with steam and bursting.

For white pudding follow the recipe as above without the blood and double the quantity of oatmeal.

When cooked allow the black pudding to cool and then cut into slices to grill or fry.
