Serves 4
  • 1 Sheep's Stomach Bag
  • 1 Sheep's Pluck (liver, lungs & heart)
  • 3 Onions
  • 250 g Beef Suet
  • 150 g Oatmeal
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Black Pepper (to taste)
  • A pinch Cayenne
  • 150 ml Gravy
How to make Traditional Haggis:
  • Start with cleaning the stomach bag properly and then soaking it overnight.
  • Turn it inside out in the morning.
  • Wash the pluck thoroughly and boil it for around 1½ hours, making sure that the impurities are removed. For this purpose, hang the windpipe over the pot, allowing its drainage. Keep the water for later use.
  • Now, mince the heart and lungs and grate half the liver.
  • Take a bowl; chop the onions and suet in it.
  • At the same time, keep the oatmeal in the oven, so that it becomes warm.
  • Now, take a large bowl and mix heart, lungs, liver, onions, suet, oatmeal, and gravy, along with salt and pepper.
  • Now, put cayenne in it.
  • Add this mixture to the pluck-boiled water, to make a watery mixture.
  • Now, fill the stomach bag until it is half full, press out the air from it and sew the bag up.
  • Let this bag boil for 3 hrs, in a container, without the lid.
  • Serve it with traditional neeps and tatties.
