  • About


  • 2lb potatoes
  • ¾lb apples
  • Sugar
  • ½lb black pudding
  • 1½oz butter
  • 2 medium-sized onions, sliced
  • Salt, pepper and nutmeg to season


    Wash the potatoes, boil them in their skins. Peel the apples, core, quarter and stew them until soft with a little sugar and water. Meanwhile, slice the black pudding and fry with the onions in half the butter until both are crisp. Keep hot. Pass the apple through a sieve, then blend into the potato with the remaining butter. Season well with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Arrange the slices of black pudding round a warmed serving dish, pile the potato in the centre and sprinkle the onion over all. Serve with home-baked bread and a glass of Dutch gin.
