Scots Food

Mmmmm, haggis.

Image here (yes, I've had it).

Typical ingredients:

1 sheep's lung (illegal in the U.S.; may be omitted if not available)
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

More instructions here.

Note, any recipe that begins with "Wash lungs and stomach well" is something to be wary of.

We can get dried lamb's lung at the dog deli here. I wonder if that's illegal too.

And how was it?

Seems like one would need more spices to season a whole sheep stomach etc. . .

It was as awful as you'd expect...but better than the Brits' steak and kidney pie.
