Epicure.

The proof of the pudding is in the eating, and I shall have this Chieftain o' the pudding race for dinner tomorrow.


I have reached into the void and procured some neeps and tatties to accompany this former wild creature on it's journey.

I shall cook it using the traditional Scottish method known as Haggis ding.

So Haggis Ding? I can't actually find the term. I found methods where you steam it or you can boil it with the 'neeps' and 'tatties' or even more. Which is it? I'm curious.

Cat; My name is Sans Pantaloons, I am of the Clan MacLeod. I was born in Hamilton in Scotland on the shores of nowhere in particular, and I am not an immortal.

Jen, I shall leave your portion in the oven on a low heat...

Sushi, you are not gonna like the answer...

Sushi, you place the Haggis in the microwave oven.
Six minutes later, it goes ding!

I'll do the tatties and turnip/swede traditionally and boil them in pots before mashing. The website associated with the Haggis pictured is:
http://www.macsween.co.uk they have recipes and other useful information.
