    Hi stoney, thanks and all best to you too, don't know how many carbs are in a haggis, so maybe you should just eat the neeps n leave the tatties!!!:p

    Hi, I'm not Scottish, Asda had no haggis, I'm off the tatties and neeps because of the carbs, but I'm enjoying a 15 year old Springbank Whisky so it's not all bad. Happy Burns night !

    I'm lucky now. my body allows me to cope with a bit of haggis these days,celeriac mash subs for neeps these days, and the neeps are OK carb wise.
    Springbank is great, but I prefer something from Skye or Islay.

  6. I don't think I would have gotten away with boiling neeps tonight. The kids are already threatening to leave home because of my cauliflower cooking stinking out the house these days :***:

    Tut tut andy. This yorkshireman has has haggis tatties and neeps and ended the night with a 5.7. Now, if a yorkshireman can do it ......

    Real lancashire black pudding tomorrow and then I'll have done my bit for Yorkshire's International Relations and it'll be back to Whitby Cod and kippers.

    I'll have to have a go at making this american dish, popular amongst the pennsylvania dutch. It's called Scrapple. It's made from Hog Offal as opposed to Sheep Offal.
