I've always thought it is haggi. Is this wrong?
Like the sing/pl of sheep.
Burns night soon, hooray!
than having him refer to it as haggi.
the guy saying things like Hagi. Hilarious.
but I still know plenty of people who prefer to use haggi. Probably an inbred Highland "joke"
see, i told you this thread was pointless! :)
it's got people talking about this most wonderful of foods
my instictive reaction would be to say Haggises... It looks and sounds wrong, but feels right...
Slightly off topic, I don't think I could eat Haggis or anything like that, e.g. Fois Gras or Patê. The idea of organs or other animals mashed together is on a personal gastro-level really quite horrific.
surprised me how palatable it was :-)
say they wouldn't eat haggis based on how it's made. When 90 percent of what they do eat is made the same way and from equally as revolting mish-mashes of things. Haha.
Haggis is really tasty. I wouldn't eat it cos im a vegetarian, but... i still remember....
is the best. I'll bring you one down on the 25th.
do it :)
I'm one of these weird people who can only tolerate true sliced meat. Am I weird?? Well basically it's just reassuring to know where your food comes from, especially meat as it's a highly tamperable food group.
From a decent butcher, in that case then.
the best bumps are always hidden. this is a lesson people could learn
truly in a minority. If you eat tongue, however, you actually have no soul.
haven't tasted it or can't taste.
highly outweighs the sight of it!
i really, really want some now
how do i go about this, living in london?
that to purchase haggis in London would entail some kind of wizardry or witchcraft.
how is it packaged?
in the womb of a small burrowing creature. Look for the eyes. THE EYES!
its hard stuff to come by
maybe borough market some time
last year I got it in Dalston Sainsbury's but it took them a while to locate because they thought it was a type of fish :)
i did a big shop there on saturday and didnt see anything
but then i wasnt looking
most supermarkets will have it, certainly near to Burns night. Just ask the staff, mentioning that it is not a fish.
you'll have to get it sent down from Scotland. Worth it if you've already got a taste for it.
The most famous is MacSween's in Edinburgh but my mum gets hers from Cockburn's in Dingwall and that is just as good. They both do mail order as do probably millions of other places.
so I don't know how they compare but Id be interested to try it.
As for cooking, I have always wrapped in foil and then put in simmering water. If you do it too hot then the haggis can burst and moisture can get in and this is bad.
i might get some friends in on the act under that pretence
I want a sausage through the post
particularly for the next 2 weeks leading up to burns night.
harder to get is veggie haggis, last year i was so tempted to feed my veggie flatmates normal haggis and tell them it was veggie :)
sainsbury's did macsweens last year.
tells me this is what Scotland is most famous for.
And yet, I'd like to visit.
and it has the added bonus of not having to eat nads.
So would a book on haggis be a haggiography?
P.S. Since you eat 'some' haggis and not 'a' haggis, the plural of haggis should be haggis, no? Like fish.
so says everyone
plus the OED
"Haggiography" hasn't had nearly enough credit here.
'Bamos AND Dalkin'
today i bought 2 haggis at Dalston Sainsbury's - one veggie and one lungy
the veggie one was as big as an orange, the meaty one as big as a small baby's head.
£3 together as a deal, or £2 each
not macsweeneys, but pretty posh seeming
had the meaty one for dinner tonight - it was easily enough to feed 4 people. crazy good value. i liked it, but didn't love it. it was like blood pudding sponge. i'm tempted to get the leftovers and shape them into a cake, and put chocolate on them and serve them as a prank.
i think i will like the veggie one more, cos the whole "this is lungs" thing was inhibitting me from enjoying it as much as i might have, cos i'm a gaylord.
I am surprised they are stocking them in there year round.
That supermarket probably has the most attractive customers ever.
amazing bump btw!
i finally do a good thread bump and someone else gets the credit :@
i'm ANGRY :@
If I were as angry as you I'd take it as some good healthy advice.
you might not want to exceed your weekly wank quota
here you go.
What a mighty good bump.
And It's HAGGI for the record
that is the definitive answer
if it were doing the latin thing then it would be either 'hagges' or 'haggises.
