    My own personal recipie for "HAGGIS"

    Since Avenger told me that Dez has no clue as to how to prepare Haggis I am providing my own recipie for his enlightenment and enjoyment ..

    1 sheep's lung (illegal in the U.S but goat's lung is ok -- we have lots of goats in Hawaii.)
    1 sheep's stomach
    1 sheep heart
    1 sheep liver
    1/2 lb fresh suet (kidney leaf fat is preferred)
    3/4 cup oatmeal (the ground type, NOT the Quaker Oats type!)
    3 onions, finely chopped
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    1/2 teaspoon cayenne
    1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
    3/4 cup stock

    Wash lungs and stomach well, rub with salt and rinse. Remove membranes and excess fat. Soak in cold salted water for several hours. Turn stomach inside out for stuffing.
    Cover heart and liver with cold water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Chop heart and coarsely grate liver. Toast oatmeal in a skillet on top of the stove, stirring frequently, until golden. Combine all ingredients and mix well. Loosely pack mixture into stomach, about two-thirds full. Remember, oatmeal expands in cooking.

    Press any air out of stomach and truss securely. Put into boiling water to cover. Simmer for 3 hours, uncovered, adding more water as needed to maintain water level. Prick stomach several times with a sharp needle when it begins to swell; this keeps the bag from bursting. Place on a hot platter, removing trussing strings. Serve with a spoon. Ceremoniously served with "neeps, tatties and nips" -- mashed turnips, mashed potatoes, and 32 oz of single malt whiskey. I strongly advise consuming the whiskey first !!!

    ENJOY!!!!!!!

    Hmmmm. I think I'd rather try tasting the stuff out of the grease trap in the hospital's kitchen.

    But, in all fairness, I like menudo, chorizo, and some other foods that a Scot wouldn't touch.

    That doesn't even sound good. I"ll stick to all that stomach and lung gunk ground into a Hot dog where it looks and tastes good!

    Gunk ???? How can you turn up your young nose at such a truly epicurean delight? Clearly you have never sampled this culinary masterpiece!! Comparing Haggis to Hot dogs is near blasphemy. Before you label Haggis as "gunk" please be fair and give the recipie a try ... minus the Scotch of course.

    It sounds disgusting. I have never sampled it and I don't think I will either.

    Sorry Maui....I can't do it. Animal organs and me just don't mix.

    Send over the turkey cooked in the pit anytime and I will chow down, but lungs, stomach, heart and liver all cooked up together freak me out.

    What is the purpose of Haggis? Is there some reason that this dish was/is made?

    Thousands of years ago, when the head of the household went hunting, a beast would be slain. The carcass would be partly eaten and the remainder could be dried or salted to preserve it. The edible offals would of course have to be dealt with right away because of the poor keeping quality in the heat. How simple, therefore, to chop them up, mix with cereal and cook in the ready made vessel - the stomach bag. Hey presto, the first 'haggis'. Once again necessity bears out to be the mother of invention ...

    Re: My own personal recipie for "HAGGIS"

    Is it suppose to be good for you? Does it have some nutritional value that I am not seeing?

    Sounds like good eats for the dogs....they eat anything.

    Nutritional value ?? Of course it has nutritional value. Didn't anyone ever tell you that oatmeal is very good for you??

    I'd be careful if I was you regarding the dog comments ... Dez could be reading this !!! He recently threatened to take away rep points for decks or butts -- can't remember which -- but you may be over the top when so overtly denigrating a pillar of Scotch culinary creation... Take heed !!

    Actually they (mountain oysters) are quite tasty !! Yes ... I am speaking from experience. At the tender age of 12 I became an indentured servant to the Double Bar K Ranch in Alpine Arizona for a summer (courtesy of my folks)Apparently my folks felt that either I or they benefited from the experience as I went back the following summer. I digress ... (Utter Blitz you should stop reading right here). During branding, earmarking, and castrating sessions, we always had a large fire going mostly to keep the branding irons hot, however, lest we grow faint from lack of nourishment, the oysters upon ... hmmm ... uhh ... detachment, yes that's it detachment, were basically tossed into the edge of the fire to roast. You could always tell when they were done, because as steam built up inside them they would "pop" quite distinctly -- sort of a built in timer you could say. Anyway they are very tasty !!

    Absolutely true...I've done time on a ranch...grab a little salsa or chili sauce from the chuck wagon for dipping. I like mine a little crispy on the outside.
