This is the hotpot recipe my mum and granny made and who know who else before. wink.gif

Ayrshire Hotpot

1 Kg slice Sausage or 1 Kg Lamb, cut into thick slices or pieces.
1 Kg Potatoes, peeled and sliced
2 onions peeled and thinly sliced
4 or 5 carrots, peeled and thinly sliced
700 gm of Turnip, peeled and thinly sliced
25gm Butter
25 gm flour
1 pint chicken or beef stock



Season the lamb with 1 teaspoon of salt & a good pinch of pepper, dust with the flour. Saute the onions in 15g of butter with little salt for 4-5mins . If using Lorn or sliced sausage, no more pepper would be needed at this point.
Put the sliced potatoes [roughly 2mm thick]. in a medium size bowl, add the remaining 25g melted butter, season with 1 teaspoon of salt and a pinch of white pepper, mix well.
Starting with the meat and ending with the potato, put alternate layers into a pot.
Pour stock over the lot, you won't need all of the pint of stock, just add about 1/4 and add more as you think it needs, don't want it soggy but not going dry either.

Put on medium heat on top of cooker until slightly boiling then simmer away for at least an 1 1/2 hours, the longer the more tastier, like most stews and mince its nicer the next day.
It's nice served with steamed cabbage or sprouts or just on its own.




I removed the second recipe from this post in accordence with the rules of the contest. It has been posted elsewhere in the forums so it would not be lost. The removed recipe can be found here : http://www.celticradio.net/php/forums/inde...ST&f=35&t=10014

MERRY CHRISTMAS, I think we all want to have respect for everones beliefs, sadly that is not the way it is, as a Scot living in Australia, the past few years I read in the papers of East meets West, rapings of western girls by eastern or middle eastern men, so quite honestly I don't see it as CHRISTIAN against eastern belefs, I don't even see it as religous at all, TOLERANCE is great as long as its a TWO way Street, and I don't see any sign of that happening anytime soon unfortunately.

So MERRY XMAS everyone, and thank you Rosemary for having the courage to bring this subject up.

Rosemary, you`ll find most of folk in Central Scotland speak Lallans in their own home, but it is a necessity that we can be understood in our commerical business too, we can`t run about spouting Lallans in our business dealings and if we are ever to have more say in the `running` of our country, it would really fall into Westminster`s lap, if they could say, `who the hell can understand that lot north of the border` so how can they communicate, they can hardly speak English, how could they possibly `run their own country` nobody understand them. whether we like it or not english is the No.1 language in the world and of course you need to be understood.

I don`t think it`s a case of our own tongue disappearing, we rely on tourism a great deal, so No!. I disagree with you, our own way of speaking will never disappear completely, if it does it will be out of need, out of habit, of speaking `properly`, to be understood, but even taking that into consideration I doubt very much it will disappear, scots, most scots are very passionate about their culture.

Gaelic was a completely different story.

Yes I do understand that, I was actually meaning if you asked any Scot `today` their perception would be that most immigrants went to Canada, there would be very few if any Scots who don`t have relatives in Canada, of the last few generations.

strange as it may seem sometimes I think the Southern States seem to have more in common with the auld country than the likes of the Northern states of America and Canada, which surprises me biggrin.gif

Most scots have the perception of Canada being where the immigrants went, willing or otherwise with the south island of New Zealand, a close second, thank you for your response CS biggrin.gif

Holy cow!  jawdrop.gif  That is Eric Bana?!  drool.gif  He looks like one of the guys in my Scottish romance novels!  wub.gif  I gotta see this movie,  Troy, now! 

Thanks for letting me know if it is a chick flick or not, gals!

Eric Bana was a good comedian in the Land of Oz, since seeing him in `Troy` just think he did a great job, and boy he did scrub up well biggrin.gif think he stole Brad`s thunder, yep he did well in this movie. biggrin.gif

anyone seeing his comedy work before `Black Hawk Down` would be hard put to recognise him, and he is a genuinely nice guy biggrin.gif

Susan Howatch has wrote some great books, mainly based on historical characters:


PENMARRIC - seems to based on the lives of Henryll & Eleanor of Aquitaine.

CASHELMARA - another great book, based on Edwardll(Longshanks son) and Isobel of France.

THE RICH ARE DIFFERENT - Caesar and Cleopatra

THE WHEEL of FORTUNE - Edward of Woodstock and Joan of Kent

All great books biggrin.gif

McGregor`s Gathering

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather, Gregarach!

Our signal for fight, that from monarchs we drew,
Must be heard but by night in our vengeful haloo!
Then haloo, Gregarach! haloo, Gregarach!

Glen Orchy's proud mountains, Kilchurn and her towers,
Glenstrae and Glenlyon no longer are ours;
We're landless, landless, landless, Gregarach!

But doomed and devoted by vassal and lord.
MacGregor has still both his heart and his sword!
Then courage, courage, courage, Gregarach!

If they rob us of name, and pursue us with beagles,
Give their roofs to the flame, and their flesh to the Eagles!
Then vengeance, vengeance, vengeance, Gregarach!

While there's leaves in the forest, and foam on the river,
MacGregor, despite them, shall flourish forever!
Come then, Gregarach, come then, Gregarach,

Through the depths of Loch Katrine the steed shall career,
O'er the peak of Ben-Lomond the galley shall steer!
And the rocks of Craig-Royston like icicles melt,
Ere our wrongs be forgot, or our vengeance unfelt!
Then gather, gather, gather, Gregarach!


another good book apart from the one Gabby recommended is `Sons of the Wolf` by Ronald Williams .

there is a lot more to the Clan Gregor than `Rob Roy` though he did us proud. biggrin.gif A GREAT man whom it is quite amazing that he died in his own bed surrounded by family, quite an amazing feat for his time and the life he was forced to lead.


Another good book about the Clan Gregor on a whole not just Rob`s time is `Sons of the Wolf` by Ronald Williams, it explains a bit more as why the proscription law against the clan was brought about, and how Alasdair of Glenstrae was so cruelly deceived.

QUOTE (TheCarolinaScotsman @ 13-Nov-2004, 07:40 AM)
Death is not a sorrow for those believers who experience it. For them it is truly joyous. It is only a sorrow for those of us who are left behind. Although we know that our loved ones have been "born into God's eternal grace", we find it difficult to cope with being left alone. All I can say is that you are not alone. Your friends have gathered round, whether physically or in spirit. Our love for you is a present reality. The miracle of God's Love is that it bridges the chasm between this world and the next. Our love for you is merely a reflection of His perfect Love. With His Love, none of us are ever alone or "left behind". We can all bask in the radiance of His Love and share it with one another. And know that this is the same Perfect Love which now envelops your aunt.

What a wonderful perspective you have! CS, it is very comforting, wish you had been around when my mammy passed away. What a comforting post that was! kiss1.gif What a lovely thread too, it`s a terrible terrible thing when you lose sopmeone you love but to have such support is really beautiful. biggrin.gif

when you hear of folk losing mothers and brothers so close and don`t seem to care, this thread has really touched me and I`m sure plenty of others. smile.gif

you are a comfort all of you! biggrin.gif
