Is pig pudding the same as black pudding as I haven't heard of it before.

I'm round my mums for Christmas dinner. Frankly nowadays I prefer my cooking to hers but it's a tradition and she'd be disappointed if we didn't show up! My main complaint is that she boils brussel sprouts; they should be roasted always.

(And never frozen - ever. 99% of people who hate brussel sprouts have only tried the frozen ones I reckon).

I'm eating raw sprouts at the moment (well not literally this moment) which I usd to eat years ago and had a craving for them again; very tangy.

Duck eggs is a very nice touch.

You are lucky you live near the sea where the "pollution" will blow away. Duck eggs and raw sprouts seems a little dangerous to me.

Caught a snippet of a program talking about brussels and selecting varieties/genetics to remove the sour tasting which around a 1/3 of the population are really sensitive to - hence then being a bit of a marmite vegetable. Turning some of the starch to sugar through roasting will offset the sourness too or make modern varieties even sweeter overall, so yes definitely roasted. Oddest brussels I've ever were cold curried ones in scandinavia, boiled to boot.

Ooh I make a mean Brussels Bhaji :)

Needs to be eaten in moderation though.

Raw sprouts are lovely. We generally have Christmas Day at home, just me, Mr Dipsy and Dipsy junior and as we don't like roasts much we tend to go for a buffet style meal with loads of cheese, hams, salads, smoked salmon and fizz. This year we are entertaining the in-laws and they are elderly and traditionally so I'm doing turkey. I'd rather have the festive fry that you are planning @stokiescum, I love black pudding.

Sounds more like a WMD than a food.

And it is actually very sad to think that is what a lot of people will be having :(

Tbh I'd be fine with that; whilst I like foraging for its own sake I don't get excited by food and the whole restaurant / celebrity chef thing interests me not one bit.

If I wasn't aware of the need for variety I would happily eat the same three meals every day.

I have had to fake enthusiasm at times but really it just all tastes very similar.

Well, yes and no. Lots of people will not be having a blow-out Xmas dinner for valid reasons - working, about to go to work, non-natives, etc... and they'll make do with a ready meal.

But I get your point - being involuntarily stuck on your own on Xmas day is no fun.

This year, me being a widower and my son divorced we have been invited to a full roast etc. at my daughters on Boxing Day.

For Christmas day, as long as the weather is not too bad, we are doing a barbecue.

BBQ, a few tins of beer and a 1970s bond movie would work well for me (well, except that I’m a vegetarian).
