    Not very appetizing....

    This does not look like something I would be salivating over...

    if you knew half of the ingredients that went into the food that you eat you probably wouldn't eat them!!! It is actually quite nice tho. Guess its like mar-mite - i really don't like that!!!!

    I love it but as redlab says if the general public found out what really goes into their food they wouldn't touch it. If they saw the state of some dairy farms they would never drink a glass of that again either !

    I love it, and to be honest I don't give a toss what's in it

    You might be surprised, its rather good traditionally made with heart liver and the lungs cereals and spices, you can also make a decent haggis with venison no need to use the lungs or even the heart but you do need a percentage of liver, which I know some on your side of the pond are rather reluctant to eat, I did have a recipe for venison haggis but can't find it

    Nicola Fletcher has a recipe for it in her venison cook book , anyone with a copy like to print it?

    For our American cousins (translation) berefet of the delight of a haggis


    Fair and full is your honest, jolly face,
    Great chieftain of the sausage race!
    Above them all you take your place,
    Stomach, tripe, or intestines:
    Well are you worthy of a grace
    As long as my arm.

    The groaning trencher there you fill,
    Your buttocks like a distant hill,
    Your pin would help to mend a mill
    In time of need,
    While through your pores the dews distill
    Like amber bead.
    His knife see rustic Labour wipe,
    And cut you up with ready slight,
    Trenching your gushing entrails bright,
    Like any ditch;
    And then, O what a glorious sight,
    Warm steaming, rich!
    Then spoon for spoon, the stretch and strive:
    Devil take the hindmost, on they drive,
    Till all their well swollen bellies by-and-by
    Are bent like drums;
    Then old head of the table, most like to burst,
    'The grace!' hums.
    Is there that over his French ragout,
    Or olio that would sicken a sow,
    Or fricassee would make her vomit
    With perfect disgust,
    Looks down with sneering, scornful view
    On such a dinner?
    Poor devil! see him over his trash,
    As feeble as a withered rush,
    His thin legs a good whip-lash,
    His fist a nut;
    Through bloody flood or field to dash,
    O how unfit.
    But mark the Rustic, haggis-fed,
    The trembling earth resounds his tread,
    Clap in his ample fist a blade,
    He'll make it whistle;
    And legs, and arms, and heads will cut off
    Like the heads of thistles.
    You powers, who make mankind your care,
    And dish them out their bill of fare,
    Old Scotland wants no watery stuff,
    That splashes in small wooden dishes;
    But if you wish her grateful prayer,
    Give her [Scotland] a Haggis!
    “Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”........Dalai Lama

    haggis is sooooo good.

    It is actually proper food!
    No fake crap you cant pronounce!
    The fact that offal isn't used in sausages these days is the reason they are tasteless!

    Beef hearts, sometimes up to 80% are use in cheap burgers.

    I love haggis. And faggots.
