Hot, Sweet and Sour Black Pudding Recipe

Hot, Sweet and Sour Black Pudding
At university one of my favourite Chinese dishes was sweet and sour pork. I’ve never made a sweet and sour dish so I thought why not start with hot sweet and sour black pudding. The black pudding I used was made from pigs blood, so it is sort of sweet and sour pork!

The hot, sweet and sour sauce worked really well with black pudding. If you want a quicker alternative, try black pudding with thai sweet chilli sauce. If you don’t like black pudding, this recipe will work well with pork or chicken.

Hot, Sweet and Sour Black Pudding

½ kilogram of black pudding, cubed
1 (20 oz., 566 grams) can pineapple chunks in heavy syrup or juice, undrained
¾ cup packed dark brown sugar

8 oz. can sliced water chestnuts, drained
16-20 sweet whole spears baby corn on the cob packed in water, rinsed and drained well
