RUIDHLE NA MARAGAN DUBH (Reel of the Black Puddings). AKA and see “Kiss the Lass Ye Like Best (2).” Scottish, Reel (cut time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune appears in other Scottish collections (such as Bremner, c. 1751-61) as “Kiss the Lass Ye Like Best (2)” (see note for). The black pudding of the title is in both Scottish and Irish Gaelic marag dubh, a name derived from the Norse word mörr, for suet, or blóõ-mörr (blood pudding). It is made from the blood of cattle and generally stuffed into sausage casings, served fried with foods like bacon and eggs. Marag is also used as a term for a shapeless, obese person.
