Nellie Geddes grew up in a fishing family from Lybster. In this audio extract she describes the diet of the rural or village poor in the early 1900s. Villagers were adept at preparing foodstuffs in many traditional ways. Very little was wasted. Lybster had its own abattoir or slaughter house where people could obtain blood and intestines from cattle to make puddings.

Nellie also describes how her mother was involved in what was really a cottage industry, making black and white puddings and sending them to other villages to the south of Lybster as far as Berriedale.
