Interesting. I've had mango chutney/salsa before, but not curried.

Speaking of vanilla beans, guess what I made last night (finally)?

does it begin with ice and end with cream?

Why are sheep's lungs illegal in the States?

So we can't get true haggis here? How tragic!

Um, the recipe is fine and all, but when do we add the evil chihuahua? This is a Haggis recipe, right?

It ends with "cream," but it starts with "rum raisin."

Drat. No sound card at work. I'll check it out when I get home.

Fear of something--TB, maybe? I've heard but can't remember.

Why are sheep's lungs illegal in the States?


Sheep lungs, as well as several other offal ingredients, were banned by the US due to the likely causal association between the human prion disease called variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD) and bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) -- better known as Mad Cow disease. While sheep do not carry BSE, they can carry scrapie, a prion disease that is very closely related to BSE. In fact, it is likely that BSE originated as a result of feeding cattle meat-and-bone meal that contained scrapie-infected sheep products. vCJD is a fatal neurodegenerative condition. It is exceedingly rare -- even in areas where offal ingredients are commonly used. Exposure does not define disease development. Only a very small percentage of people exposed to BSE will develop vCJD although small children have a greater risk than adults. Ultimately, the ban on offal ingredients is to protect us from those nasty little prion proteins. That being said, who's up for a trip to Scotland. I'm sure we could make it through customs. I mean really, what doesn't make it through customs?

So the kids and I will be by tonight to pick up our tub. Unless there's not enough. If that's the case then I'll just look your beautiful grandchildren in the eyes and say, "I'm sorry, guys. Grandpa said you can't have any of his ice cream. It's his special recipe and he said he doesn't want to waste it on you." :D

If I gave any of that to the kids, DHS would get me for child abuse. Stuff's loaded with rum, you know.

They're pounding down the forum door to read how to skin, fillet and stuff you for dinner. Do you really think I'm the one sullying their opinion of you?:ROFL:

Oooooo, I'm telling RT!!!! He's *so* going to ban you!

Haggette, please tell us about how your dad cooked for you in your formative years. Was he all vanilla beans and haggis, or did he just throw some fish sticks in the toaster oven and call it dinner?

You can buy doggie treats that are made from sheep lungs. A friend of mine gives them to her dogs. They are light...airy, and look like.....chunks about two-three inches long, 1-2 inches wide.

They do that because...because...because they like me. Yeah. That's it. They like me. And you're trying to ruin it.

Here. Have a prion sammich.

Alas, no fish sticks. But I do recall a lovely baking soda duck we had for Christmas one year. I never knew baking soda could be used for seasoning until that meal. It would have tasted better if he'd have just let the damn thing burn. A little contained fire never hurt anyone.

Like it's my fault the flambe started when the duck was in the oven rather than on a plate.

so has anyone actually *tried* the recipe?

Or found a recipe that we can make here in the states? Sheep's lungs may be out, but I know you can buy stomach and other things... maybe not from a sheep but is there an acceptable susbtitute?

I would, really, like to try this out...

There are artificial casings you can use, but I'm not sure where to get them. Maybe ask a butcher?

Here's another recipe (http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/recipes/recipe/0,,FOOD_9936_17236,00.html) from Alton Brown that sounds pretty easy.

He usually is.
But this show is called Cook's Tour and yes, it's the Food Channel.
Enjoy!

There will be a test later...

AB in Scotland? Lord, just add ice and shake him. He'll not know if he's on foot or horseback, nevermind what's being served.

The show was a hoot.
It started out with a couple pints of Guinness for breakfast.
Mmmm, breakfast of champions.

Then on to the haggis restaurant:

After a lengthy discussion and many camera shots of the haggis in preparation, it was served with the pomp and ceremony befitting royalty.
The haggis was carried reverently on a platter by the chef, preceded by a bagpipe player at full volume and costumed in full kilt.
When the ceremonial march to the table ended, the bagpipe player quoted a lengthy and vigorous poem by Robert Burns in honor of the haggis.
He then drew his sword with a flourish and neatly sliced up the haggis for serving.
A memorable performance. :D

I had haggis in Scotland many years ago (I'm ashamed to say how many...) I remember it being like corned beef hash, but not as spicy. Quite yummy.
Yeah the making of is gross, it's dead animal. Making sausage is just as gross.

PS Love Bourdain in UK/Scotland. That deep fried haggis looks frightening though.

Heathen :)

I'm Scottish, and share a birthday with Robert Burns. It's traditional, every Jan 25th, to eat huge haggis, drink lots of whisky, sing Burns songs and recite Burns poetry. And a great time is had by all.

And it happens worldwide, not just in Scotland. The Russians in particular love it.

Haggis is real food.

But...but that's beef. :( Tain't the same. No way. No how. And what's that "traditionally shaped casing?" Willie, you're letting me down, mon. Can't we at least get some sheep involved in this thing in the US? I know they won't do lungs, but what's the problem with the rest of it?

I had haggis in Scotland, on my honeymoon. I liked it...until I was about halfway through and started really thinking about what it was.

I'm afraid I left it unfinished. But if you have a stronger stomach than me, it really was tasty.

From Alton Brown's recipe- "Serve with mashed potatoes, if you serve it at all."
