One word for this dish: revolting

While in Scotland, we ate in a restaurant and hubby said:"Well tonight is the night." I understood what he meant when he ordered. I'm usually quite opened to sample different dishes from different cultures but I don't know if it was the fact that I was tired, anyways I didn't feel like tasting or trying the famous scottish "haggis" that night.

When his plate arrived in front of him I almost puked on the table.God!was that ever ugly what was in the plate.I surely didn't feel well I'm sure. Next time we visit I must try it. yucky.gif

A tied off sheeps paunch is not a pleasant thing to behold, but it is actually meat. That being the traditional presentation, a casserole Haggis would eliminate the problem with appearance. Not all Haggis is made with the same ingredients either. There are a lot of Haggis options.

If you order it in Scotland, you will probably get the traditional presentation. You can ask for just a portion to be served without the paunch.

If you are interested in trying Haggis, never read a traditional Haggis recipe. It tends to assail ones senses.

Patch;

The second time I had Haggis in Scotland last year it was in a restaurant and when served it looked like Meat Loaf. My cousin told me that it is served like that to Tourist unless thay ask for Traditional. Not all restaurants do this just this one because they get a lot of Americans eating there. It was Gooooood.

Of course you butcher one sheep and you get one paunch thus one traditional Haggis. That is what probably makes it so special. After the Haggis, there is a lot of mutton to eat before you butcher the next one and I have heard that the Scot's could make a small piece of mutton last all week. I would not put Haggis above a really good steak!! Of course if in Scotland sharp knives are banned, with a haggis, you could untie one end and squeeze the contents out as it it were a cake decorator. Just kidding!

It's amazing the uses of a sheeps' stomache, Haggis, Water Bag, Flotation Device, and of course BagPipes. We Scots are inventive EH!.

Sorry about the corn. I love it in season. Sure makes one wonder where all the food borne ailments are coming from! There was talk in govt about forcing all distributors of food to have listed the country of origin ON the product. I gave up most seafood for that reason.

Yes, I heard the story of the bagpipes. For any who have not, A Scot was walking his pasture, eyes on the distant hills looking for his sheep when he accidentally stepped on a bloated sheeps carcass. The sound was somewhat pleasing, the Scotsman thought about for a while and thus the Bagpipes were born!

That conjures up some really evil images as to how we reached the point where we are at today with the Bagpipes.

When I sent my Bagpipes to be restored there was nothing left of the bag and just a few very small pieces of wool tartan from the cover. For pipes that were a gift they turned out to be pricy in restoration.
