The Return of Haggis
Scots of America, rejoice! After a 21 year ban, haggis will be allowed in America.
The ban began back in 1989, due to fears of mad-cow disease (BSE). For those of you who don't know, haggis is sheeps heart, lungs, and liver, minced with onions and spices, and boiled in a sheep's stomach. Wow.
I have to tell you, I've always heard of haggis, and I may have known 2 or 3 people that have had it. And, well...I'm a bit curious. But it just sounds so awful and unappetizing. The closest thing I can say that I've had to haggis is chitterlings (or "chitlins"), a common southern/African American dish made of pig intestines; it smells DISGUSTING, and tastes...eh. Not my fave AT ALL. But...if you've never had Scrapple....OH! Awesome!!! Sure, it's pork "scraps" and junk, but it is delicious!!!
So, yeah. Haggis. Welcome back, I guess. Maybe I'll try it. Maybe....
