Black pudding crumpets

Black pudding crumpets

breakfast | serves 2

A perfect friendship of flavours: rich, crisp, gnarly black pudding; sweet, maple apples; and fresh, sharp, lemony watercress, served on the humble crumpet. Delicious.

1. Heat a little oil in a pan on a medium?high heat. Fry the black pudding for 2?3 minutes each side, or till the surface is browned. Break up a few slices, let them crisp up, then move to kitchen paper on a plate, to drain.
2. Add the apple and juice of half the lemon to the juices left in the pan. Cook for 1 minute or so each side, until starting to caramelise. Add the maple syrup and toss to coat the apple. Cook for 1 minute more till thick and glossy. Return the black pudding to the pan to warm. Toast your crumpets.
3. In a jar, shake the rest of the lemon juice with twice as much extra-virgin olive oil and a little salt and pepper, then dress the watercress. Top the crumpets with black pudding and appple and serve with the cress.
