Cashel-Blue-Black-Pudding-and-Battered-Apple-Starter

  • 1 chubb of black pudding (eg. Clonakilty black pudding)
  • 2 medium apples
  • 125g pack of Cashel Blue® cheese
  • some white flour (for the batter)
  • sparkling water (for the batter)
  • Mustard
  • Honey
  • Oil and Vinegar
  1. Fry the apple slices until soft, and set aside
  2. Make honey and mustard dressing by mixing mustard, honey, a little oil and some vinegar
  3. Cut black pudding into approx 1cm thick slices, and fry. Once cooked, place the slices on a baking tray. Add a generous chunk of Cashel Blue® cheese on top of each slice of black pudding. Place the tray in the oven on a low heat.
  4. Make the batter by mixing water and flour. If you have some sparkling water this works especially well :)
  5. Coat the fried apple slices in the batter. Heat a generous amount of oil in the pan and then shallow-fry the coated apple slices, until they are golden brown and crispy. Remove from oil and set on some kitchen paper or a towel to remove excess oil.
  6. Remove the black pudding slices from the oven, the cheese will be nicely melted on top. Combine this with the battered apple slices on a plate. Garnish with a sprig of parsley and drizzle with some honey and mustard dressing.
