When I was Working in a store!! That makes diners for people my bose did get the question of he can make hagis!! Ad that time we didn't know what is was. But my boss fixt it, and of course I couldn't let it to try and it whas not bad!!
At a Highland gathering with a dram of Scottish whiskey. This taste was veified as authentic by my father-in-law with the last name of Angus. From Saltcoats, Scotland and a former member of the Black Watch. Looking forward to more actually!
Dear Lord, lest I continue in my complacent ways, help me to remember that someone died for me today. And if there be war, help me to remember to ask and to answer "am I worth dying for?" - Eleanor Roosevelt
The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly is to fill the world with fools. -- Herbert Spencer, English Philosopher (1820-1903)
In the PI I ate tuyo, (dried fish) and rice. I had read a story about a man who had been unjustly sued for libel, and all they could afford to eat was tuyo and rice, he did not complain because he said "It tastes like truth."
I would like to try hagis, but i am afraid I will have to learn to prepare it myself. I think it must taste like the highlands.
If you don't come back muddy and bloody, you didn't have a good time.
The reputation of the haggis is greatly exagerated! If you were to eat some without knowing what it was you would either like it or hate it... one never knows until one tries! It is kind of like eating tonge... if I were to give you a sandwhich with brown mustard and swiss cheese and after you ate it told you.... well haggis is like that, it seems to be the thought of what it is that turns folks off...
I support the separation of church and hate!

One can not profess to be of "GOD" and show intolerence and prejudice towards the beliefs of others.

Yes I have tried it, both here in the states and in Scotland and I must say that I found rather pleasing.
For those interested there is a place here in Texas that makes Haggis, and it is very good, the name is Caledonian Kitchen.

I actually made the stuff for a local Burns night years ago ("local" back then was Providence, Rhode Island). It was a last minute deal, the company we ordered it from didn't come through and we had 24 hours to come up with it. I have a lot of stories. . . especially going to the sausage factory looking for a casing. They really do sing when you poke them as they're boiling -- not unlike pipes.
I had out-of-this-world haggis in Fort William, on a day when you could not see the top of Ben Nevis for the mizzling cold rain and fog (must have been about 45 degrees outside, in August!) We were so cold and tired and wet I would have eaten sheep jobbies, but this haggis was full of pepper and it was just exactly what the weather required. (The waitress refused to bring it to me until I asked three times, then she stood there watching me eat it. )
I haven't had it yet. But I plan to attend the Highland games in northern Arizona next month in July and I hear they will have a whisky tasting and haggis, so I will be there to taste both! Will let you know what I think after then.
I tried the Dreaded Haggis at the Stone Mountain Highlands Games a few years ago.
- The actual color of green that I turned is not found in nature.
- My wife had to move away from me from the smell coming off my plate.
- The "taste" lingered in my sinuses for hours afterwards, continuing my nausea.
- I can best describe it as "liver meatloaf".
My entire family has always said that I have an iron stomach in that I can eat just about anything. But I learned that this characteristic did not include the Dreaded Haggis.
I will be willing to entertain the argument that I simply got a bad batch of the stuff, that the "good" haggis is actually a good-tasting food. And with that I am willing to give it one, and only one, more try. But my gentle bride has declared that I will do so without her pleasant company.

It's sausage. Or, maybe to be a bit more accurate, it's kinda like scrapple and sausage put together. We have it at the Games every year, though if I remember correctly, the lights (lungs) and a couple other items had to be brought in from Canada or procured from a friendly butcher here. Apparently it's illegal to sell some organ meats and well...ya need it in haggis. Ours comes out rather mild-flavored with the possible exception of the pepper.
We slice it up to eat as is, or break up bits of it to put on crackers for the faint of heart to try first.
