    Looking for the Brave and STRONG Stomach

    In the spirit of our international forum’s homeland (Scotland)……The first person who cooks this up and eats a healthy portion gets a ClanRam T-shirt courtesy Ramble On.

    Proof of the meal must be provided!:rolleyes:

    Haggis
    Recipe courtesy Alton Brown

    1 sheep stomach
    1 sheep liver
    1 sheep heart
    1 sheep tongue
    1/2 pound suet, minced
    3 medium onions, minced
    1/2 pound dry oats, toasted
    1 teaspoon kosher salt
    12 teaspoon ground black pepper
    1 teaspoon dried ground herbs

    Rinse the stomach thoroughly and soak overnight in cold salted water.

    Rinse the liver, heart, and tongue. In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook these parts over medium heat for 2 hours. Remove and mince. Remove any gristle or skin and discard.

    In a large bowl, combine the minced liver, heart, tongue, suet, onions, and toasted oats. Season with salt, pepper, and dried herbs. Moisten with some of the cooking water so the mixture binds. Remove the stomach from the cold salted water and fill 2/3 with the mixture. Sew or tie the stomach closed. Use a turning fork to pierce the stomach several times. This will prevent the haggis from bursting.

    In a large pot of boiling water, gently place the filled stomach, being careful not to splash. Cook over high heat for 3 hours.
    Serve with mashed potatoes, if you serve it at all.

    Yield: Depends on how much you throw out from the get go

    I still can’t believe people actually eat this stuff!

    The Spartan General-King Leonidas shouted "Molon Labe" to the Persian King Xerxes, when Xerxes offered to spare the lives of Leonidas, and his people if they would lay down their arms. The phrase literally means, "Come and get them"... At the time, the Persian army outnumbered the Spartans 600,000 to 300, or 2,000-1.

    Just reading that recipe makes you hungry eh Dez?

    I'm thinking about ClanRammers who have not had the misfortune of eating Haggis before. I have a feeling my money for the shirt is not in jepordy.

    By the way, what is suet and can you buy Haggis in the nearby grocery store in Scotland?:rolleyes:

    Anything tastes better with a wee dram or two.....with Haggis I think I would need a wee dram or 10!

    I hope to travel to Europe one day and will definitely try Haggis. I am sure it is pretty good......I just won't think about what it is made of.

    How was that Haggis Dez?

    What would be the possibility of you or DODRAM sending some to me in an igloo?

    That way I can buy myself the shirt!
