"White Pudding" or "Mealie Pudding?" ~ Know the difference?, Let's clarify..
Basically White Puddings are known throughout the UK as opposed to Mealie Puddings which are a very Scottish, North East product.
So here's the beef on what's what. These here are "White Puddings" they're basically the same recipe as the "Mealie Puddings" but a small amount of water is added to bind the mix before being filled by hand into natural casings. The water makes them stable, allowing them to be battered and still keep their shape. To cook these we recommend in a low oven till cooked through or in a microwave.
A "Mealie Pudding" however, contains no water. The puddings are produced by filling plastic skins which should be removed before cooking. The Mealie Puddings can be either heated slowly on the hob, allowing time for the fat to melt before turning the heat up or simply microwaved on a high heat. This will produce a loose, spicy "Skirlie" as we call it, and should be a bit crispy. Whereas a "White Pudding is generally softer with a bit of stodge about it.
