The World Black Pudding Throwing Championship

We’ve visited quite a few odd events over recent weeks (most of which are still to be downloaded and documented!). This is one of the quirkiest — the World Black Pudding Throwing Championship at Ramsbottom…

We bought a couple of the (competition class?) black puddings while we were there, as supplied by the Bury Black Pudding Company. They were surprisingly herby, and tasted very different to the kind of black pudding that I normally buy. That might be because — in a rash moment of health-consiousness — I opted for the lean version instead of the regular version… or perhaps they just do things differently in Lancashire. They were nice enough, but I think I prefer my blutwurst a bit less herby. That said, the web site offers a chilli black pudding, which looks awfully tempting.
