Dock Pudding

Dock Pudding
Dock Pudding!

For those of you who might have doubted me when I claimed (two years back) that the good folks of Hebden Bridge are in the habit of eating dock leaves with their fry-ups, here is photographic proof.

We had dock pudding for breakfast last Sunday.

Bloody marvellous, 'appen!

[Important Note: Actually, they're not dock leaves, they're the leaves of common bistort, but they're known as dock leaves in these parts!]

  1. Both of my cats make dock pudding quite regularly.  Don't seem to use a frying pan though.

  2. Dog pudding? At last, a practical use for those bloody annoying, snappy things!
