Schotse Haggis

It looks good but when I was in Edinburgh I  probably had the most distasteful dish of my life. No, offence to the people of Scotland, because it did taste good! I just don’t like the idea of eating intestines and that’s exactly what this is.

Haggis is a traditional Scottish dish containing sheep’s heart, liver and lungs. This is minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, and traditionally encased in the animal’s stomach and simmered for a couple of hours.

Haggis is traditionally served with “neeps & tatties”, it is Scottish for turnip and potato. You can see my haggis in the picture above, it looks very chic and beautiful. We had just a little bit previous to our main course.  Like I said it really did taste good, but I didn’t eat the whole thing. We were eating in a castle and minutes before it was served a Scottish dressed man gave a demonstration and sliced open the stomach with the intestines in it. At that point I lost my appetite for haggis!
