Scottish Cuisine: Haggis

Haggis is a traditional Scottish delicacy, made all the more delightful these days by being smothered in batter and then deep fried. The one you can see in this photo provided me with last evening's meal and went down a treat. As you can see, it is accompanied by a smallish portion of Scottish salad, or chips as they are sometimes called in England.

In case you are wondering, haggis consists of  sheep lungs, heart and liver, all chopped up and then mixed with oatmeal. Traditionally it is cooked in the animal's stomach lining, but these days artificial casings tend to be used.
