WHAT is haggis? Please explain. And please tell me it’s actually appetizing.
Forewarning. Haggis, in the same way as Black Pudding, doesn’t sound nice when it’s just the ingredients. But trust me when I say, it’s fucking glorious in taste.
Haggis is a dish containing sheep’s ‘pluck’ (heart, liver and lungs), minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, and traditionally simmered in the animal’s stomach for approximately three hours.
I refused to eat haggis for years, until I was maybe 16. I knew what was in it, so I refused to even try it. I shed a single tear every single day, at the though of all the haggis I could have eaten in those 16 years!
Since 1971 it has been illegal to import haggis into the US from the UK due to a ban on food containing sheep lung, which constitutes 10 to 15% of the traditional recipe.
The thing that looks like a rock is a prepared for eating haggis…the furry bastard behind it is a wild haggis. You can’t see it’s leg too clearly, which is a shame cos that’s the best bit about them!
