Burns Night is inescapable at this time of year. From the ethical, locally sourced produce at Earthy to the mass market of major supermarket chains, haggis is all around.
I was interested to read a report on the BBC website that authentic haggis is a banned foodstuff in the USA. The problem is one of its ingredients - lungs. So when I was doing the supermarket shop today I did a quick ingredient check and sure enough, lungs are the first-named item.
I was amused by the usual nanny-state instruction, 'Ensure product is pip[ing hot before serving].' I liked to think that it might say instead 'Ensure product is piped in before serving.'
Oh dear, I am such a bad blogger at the moment. I have several excuses, one of which I'll show you shortly.
