The story of Inch House pudding.......
Máirín’s Grandmother Mary Ryan killed a pig, like most houses in older days, once or twice a year. “No waste” was always Mary’s motto and so she used the pig's blood to make fresh blood puddings to rear her large family. Later in life Mary passed the making of the pudding on to her daughter Nora and in turn to Nora's daughter Máirín. Keeping family traditions alive is what it’s all about. Nora and Máirín are very passionate women and when it comes to food they are true to form. Working together in their highly successful Inch House Country House & Restaurant for many years they developed a range of award-winning puddings, firstly to add to their restaurant menu and then later to develop into a stand-alone business to meet the growing demand from customers. Today, Máirín makes one of the few fresh pig's blood puddings available in Ireland, where the majority of puddings are made with powdered blood for convenience and longer shelf life.
Fresh pudding from fresh ingredients
Inch House puddings are a true artisan product, hand-made to a recipe handed down through the generations using locally sourced products wherever possible including fresh Irish pig's blood, bacon & Irish oats.
Inch House puddings do not contain any Monosodium Glutamate, stabilizers, emusifiers or any artificial flavours or preservatives. They are naturally high in iron and are suitable for freezing. There is also a gluten-free black pudding to cater for those with a gluten intolerance.
