LOL Randi!!! I guess that you are not up for a bit of sheeps stomach then?? Ha! You don't actually eat the stomach, it is just used to hold all the lovely ingredients in for cooking. Then it is split open and the insides scooped out and devoured. I'm really selling this dish am I not.....lol!
In reality and these days, a stomach isn't used to hold all the ingredients in and what is now used and has been for many many years is artificial casing, much the same as what they use for sausages etc. Our Kris had it when she lived over here and she loved it!
Yep, tatties are indeed potatoes and the neeps, they are turnips. Both essential to have with the haggis. Sounding better now I bet!!
Thanks for the link and quote Eli, and geee, I must have missed the bit about our dish being "inedible"!!! After all, it's done us proud for centuries!!
Hugh Pennington is one of the worlds most respected authorities on food hygiene etc and he is always in the media here when something breaks out food wise etc. So I'm with Hugh here and also our butchers when they say that taking the lung out is "unthinkable" for the dish!! Is lamb not eaten much in the US? We love it over here.
