Always Keep a Black Pudding Handy

Recommended Posts

That was a very lucky butcher.

I think it is a very good use for black pudding. In fact I think that is probably the only use I could find for it. Its not my idea of something to introduce in to ones body.

It is definitely something I don't bother buying at the butchers, never given it a thought really.

Something definitely wrong with this tale.

Although Elf & Safety continually gets a bad press, they do come up with some sensible rules and regulations - one is that a walk-in freezer/refrigerator should only be walked into if there is at least one other person on the premises who can facilitate a rescue if things go wrong. In addition to that, the mechanism for opening the door of a walk-in freezer should be a large long handled lever, not a piddly little green button, with a marked similarity to a giant Smartie, hidden by shelving.

 

A visit from the Health & Safety Executive is long overdue, I feel or perhaps the butcher is just overstocked with black puddings and needs publicity to get rid of them.

I'm happy to believe it, particularly as there's a picture of the unit in question HERE I have to say that the outside of the unit doesn't look that well maintained with significant amounts of moss algae and crap on the door seal and the inside of the door doesn't look any cleaner than the outside. Hygienic isn't a word that springs to mind, if I'd been on his client list I'd be a bit concerned.

That freezer (or whatever it is) does not comply at all with current requirements from any point of view.

The shop should be shut down immediately as a hazard to health.

I think black pudding should be renamed "coloured pudding".

My suggestion is " Semi congealed animal blood and fat product in tubular format, (EC) 178/2002 compliant (but only just)  "

You don’t know what you are missing. It was delicious last night. We have five packs in the freezer.

Handy for when you lock yourself in.

For the freezer ? Clearly Burntwood is a high crime area.
