This husband-and-wife team does business one day a week, with only two items, beef tripe soup and this beef-based black pudding. Many varieties of blood sausages, as they are also known, are prepared throughout the Caribbean. The texture of this Antiguan version, stuffed with chile-and-scallion-inflected rice, was reminiscent of a just-boiled Cajun boudin.
Since mine had been withdrawn from the pot immediately before serving, the contents could be squeezed from the casing with only light pressure from my fingers — no utensils needed. One link, scored for easy tearing and sharing, will set you back $5; the extra piece in the center was the proprietors' lagniappe.
