I bought a haggis!
My Plaid Heart is so happy right now.
Before you say ‘eww’, what I bought isn’t actually authentic haggis. You can’t get it in the U.S. because the FDA has strict rules about consuming lungs (gross you say?). What I purchased is made with lamb breast and beef liver. And of course, the traditional oatmeal, onion, and spices that make haggis such a distinctive Scottish food. In days of old, haggis was encased in the lining of a sheep’s stomach (also a little gross – I admit), but that has also been modernized, with most haggis today presented in either an artificial casing or a casing similar to sausage. Regardless, I’m pretty excited. (And just for the record, if given the opportunitiy, yes…I would eat haggis made the traditional way.)
