Haggis

Haggis is a kind of stuff black pudding eaten by the Scots and considered by them to be not only a delicacy  but also fit for human consumption. The minced heart, lungs and liver of a sheep, calf or other animal inner organs are mixed with oatmeal, sealed and boiled in maw in the sheep's intestinal stomach bag and------------------excuse me for a minute!!!!

Foreigners cannot enjoy our food, I suppose, any more than we can enjoy theirs. It is not strange; for tastes are made, not born. I might glorify my bill of fare until I was tired; but after all, the Scotchman would shake his head and say, 'Where's your haggis?' and the Fijan would sigh and say, 'Where's your missionary?

Visit Scotland and have a plate of Haggis with Mashed Potato and mashed turnip you will like it, and you will love Scotland the beauty of the scenery and the outstanding beauty of the women.

Green grow the rashes, O; <br />
The sweetest hours that e'er I spend, <br />
Are spent among the lasses, O'. <br />

Hey wait a minute... Tiff honey... you Rebs shouldn't go slagging off Scots for eating sheep innards when you eat a delicacy made of pigs intestines!!<br />

I always fancied trying chittlins but can't seem to get them in the UK. However, they do sell Haggis in my local supermarket.<br />

If you don't fancy eating offal you can buy Vegetarian Haggis these days which have Beans, Lentils & Nuts instead of the minced up bits of dead sheep...a jolly good eat they are too.<br />
