I first had haggis in a cozy pub in Edinburgh. With the spices and all, I really liked it! Of course, I haven't been brave enough yet to try the canned variety...

Mom used to make the best baked beef heart in dressing ever!! I can not remember if she pre-cooked the heart before baking it with the stuffing.

My grandmother often made boiled mutton/broth with neeps & tatties. Depending on what was in season other vegetables were added. It usuallu lasted two or three meals even with my cousin and I there. We ate it over dry (stale) home baked bread. I am making myself hungry.

Isn't it a norvegian dish?

I wonder if they serve it in Iceland as well? If so, when going I'll try it.

I looked that up on the net and will pass!! The recommendation was that you drink till you can not taste the difference between LUTEFISK and a Kit Kat bar with catsup on it. Then you eat the LUTEFISK with a LOT of mustard!

Ah, that she was. She didn't use recipe's so only the things my sister wrote down exist. I used to get a recipe from her occasionally but I rarely cook any more.

My grandmother on dads side cooked for granddad and he liked the Scot food. I grew up with Scot, Irish and since dad was a butcher, some German cuisine.

As a kid when friends came to our house they were sometimes shocked by what was in the refrigerator. It contained jars of strange things at times.

I haven't tried it yet but its on my to do list. I remember Lutefisk was really the haggis of Minnesota when I was living there. I think a couple of DJs named Elmo And Pasty recorded a Lutefisk song that was quite popular in the twin Cities in the 80"s. I still have the 45 somewere.
Back to the haggis the canned version is the only kind I've seen and I have to travel two hours to get it so I can wait. Hey , I've already have had squid and octopus so what the heck!

Patch;

On my trip to Scotland last October I had some really great Haggis for dinner one night. My Cousins wife made it "Bluidy Great". Your lucky your mother was a good cook, mine wasn't. I fact we use to say "don't loose the can opener Mom or we'll starve to death".However she did make gooooood porridge. Had to use a jackhammer to get it out of the pot. The way I like it, thick with brown sugar and cream.

I learned the hard way that when restaurants advertised "Moms Home Cooking" that all Moms were not equal in the cooking department.

In Haggis the cooking container is the sheeps paunch. My grand mother made it as a casserole in a covered container many times too. (probably similar to canned Haggis) I believe she made it with pork parts also from time to time. She cooked on a wood burning cook stove until the last couple of years of her life. Sometimes I wish I could go back even if only for a day or two! Another of my favorites was Mutton "biled" with "neeps and tatties" and a couple of onions. I learned to love meat broth over old bread that way and still have that whenever possible.
