Westcountry Hog's Pudding
Sausages
Devon, Cornwall, Gloucestershire, Westcountry

(or Hogs Pudding, Dartmoor Pudding, Groats Pudding)

A form of highly-spiced White Pudding sausage. Most traditionally spiced groats (grains, usually oats or barley, crushed and husks removed) with minced pork offal and fat filled into ox casings, boiled and then part dried for sale. Cut and fried to serve. Now commonly make with pork trimmings and rusk.

The name 'Hog's Pudding' appears from time-to-time at least since the early 1700's, throughout England, as a synonym for 'White Pudding', but has long come to have a particular association with Devon and Cornwall.
