Haggis – a Traditional Scottish Dish
According to Wikipedia,
Haggis is a dish containing sheep’s ‘pluck’ (heart, liver and lungs), minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, and traditionally simmered in the animal’s stomach for approximately three hours.
It’s hard to believe, but there are people who actually loves eating this crap. Even worse, there’s a canned version of this abomination!
1. Set up operations outside, because this thing probably stinks like hell.
2. Use a can opener.
3. There is a large quantity of fat in the can: it’s sort of like opening a can of deviled ham. Surprisingly, it doesn’t smell as bad as expected.
4. A lot of yellow liquid pours out of the can.
5. A big lump slides out easily. It’s the haggis. A large amount of the fat stayed inside the can.
6. The casing was very tough, even when attacked with a sharp knife. It strongly resembles yellowish plastic, but it’s probably a sheep stomach.
I don’t know how it tastes (and I don’t want to try).
