Tottenham Pudding

Vegetables

Boiled food scraps, set solid. A food for pigs and poultry.

This receipt appears to have originated, or been popularised, by work at the WWII Tottenham Salvage depot. Halnan & Garner's 1944 'Principles and Practice of Feeding Farm Animals' has; "In the process of cooking the waste..sets to a firm..‘pudding' which finds a ready market for feeding to pigs and poultry. Since this pudding was first produced in..Tottenham..such prepared food is known as ‘Tottenham Pudding’." (OED)
