Hog's Pudding is a type of sausage produced in Cornwall and Devon.[1] Some versions of the recipe comprise pork meat and fat, suet, bread, and oatmeal or pearl barley formed into the shape of a large sausage - also known as 'Groats pudding' and are very similar to a white pudding, whereas others versions of the recipe contain a high percentage of offal such as lung and liver and can more accurately be described as a sort of West Country haggis.[2] It is a lot spicier than white pudding as it contains black pepper, cumin, basil and garlic. The sausage is usually around two inches in diameter.
