    Our favourite ingredient of the moment is the Spanish version of black pudding, morcilla. Spain’s answer to our black pudding is a mile from the slice you’ll get with your fry-up. It’s a spiced blood sausage, delicate, with a gentle tang. Recipes vary across Spain from the loose, rice-flecked morcilla from Burgos, to morcilla de arroz, the variety made with onion and rice.

Try it in fried potatoes with a poached egg
