Ispini Sausages from Clonakilty Blackpudding

Clonakilty make Ireland's favorite Blackpudding using a recipe that originated in the town on Clonakilty in the 1880's and since then the recipe hasn't changed much at all. Since the Twomey family took responsibility for the secret recipe in the 1980's the popularity of the Blackpudding has continued to grow and is now available around the world. In recent years they've added Whitepudding, sausages, rashers and bacon to their range of foods.

Clonakilty have just launched Ispini (sausages) here in the UK  and having been sent a range of products to try I must say we are impressed! Made using 100% Irish pork they are meaty with a have a nice firm bite to them and a soft casing; we really like them. Perfect for breakfast, dinner BBQ or a cheeky sausage sandwich 😋 I fried the sausages but of course you can grill them or pop them in the oven if you prefer; whichever way you cook them they brown well and taste good.

Full Irish Breakfast

As I've already mentioned, they also make Whitepudding (which personally I prefer) but Paul's dad says this is the best Blackpudding he's ever had! (Paul's my husband in case you're wondering). I will say it has a lovely spiciness without being overpowering. The Whitepudding tastes very slightly sweet but again it's nicely spiced and both have a good texture.

One thing's for sure, if you eat a Full Irish Breakfast you won't need feeding again for a good while!

For a Typical Irish Breakfast you will need:
Back Bacon
Clonakilty Ispini Sausages
Clonakilty Black and Whitepudding
Baked Beans
Eggs - free range of course
Mushrooms - sliced
Tomatoes - halved
Potato Bread - I used the Irish brand Rankin

Serve with a side of Irish Soda Bread and a nice Cup of  Tea.
