CALLING ALL YANKS!!!
« on: June 30, 2014, 02:46:31 PM »

C'MON you guys................petition your president............

you don't know what you are all missing???

just read that you guys in power banned the import of Scottish haggis in 1971 and have not repealed this ban..........will have to call in Elliot McNess on this one I think!! {-) {-)

goodness me..........Prohibition didn't last that long, %% %% %% %%


Nice haggis with neaps and tatties and a cream whisky sauce poured all over it............yummy.

just think, a nation of Americans have grown up not knowing what a delicacy it is.............you poor souls. {:-{ {:-{ <:( <:( <:(

Not quite how I would describe it.  Given a choice I would rather eat mothballs washed down with domestos which is much more appetising.  The yanks have got this one spot on.  I doubt very much they have suffered any great loss as a result of the ban.

Must admit we went to a Hogmanay Party years ago and had Haggis with all the trimmings, it was Ok, but nothing to go mad about, tasted a bit like Frickadellas to be honest, but we didn't have the Dieing Cat Chorous, so that made it better. ( The Haggis was real from Scotland, bought from the NAAFI, )

There used to be an establishment opposite (or very close to) the entrance to the docks in Aberdeen that served up deep fried haggis...one of the finest take away meals I've ever eaten. Not recommended though if you were looking at a rough crossing over to the Shetlands...

Its OK Neil, there are plentiful supplies of the Chieftain o` the puddin` race in USA.   www.scottishgourmetusa.com but they are planning lifting the ban which was brought in due to British BSE.

I can say with reasonable certainty that the Phillistines probably left the world a much greater culinary legacy than the haggis!!

Historical research explains that the Mid-eastern Haggis was bred in captivity therefore inferior to the free-range Scottish species  found roamin` in the gloamin`...aye.  Some of these escaped capture and stowed-away on emigrant ships to the New World during the Highland Clearances <:(  Och aye, ( no K in "och") >:-o

If my first one haggis came from the butcher's shop of the locks of the Canal CalÚdonian I would never have eaten of haggis!   <:(

But I ate my first one haggis has DEACON BRODIES TAVER in EDINBURGH. And it was good (it is French which says that) :-)) :-)) :-))

I ate it 5 times I believe in 29 days and I imported it in France. O0 {-)

I am going to cook to my neighbor (the friend of NIEL) there   %)

I would tell you

I understood that Haggis was banned a good 10 years before the BSE Panic. Just as a matter of interest, BSE was endemic in Germany, but was called another name, herds were still slaughtered but there was no mad Panic,indeed it was kept very quiet, just the Brits got the blame! As usual!!

I ate my first Haggis from an English supermarket and it was awful. Years later when under maintenance in Port Edgar the corro invited me to Burns night supper at his home in St. Andrews. Not being au fait with this do I accepted.  In came the Haggis and I dutifully loaded my plate and prepared for the worst. However it was absolutely delicious. When working in the Falklands every Wednesday evening in the Sergeants mess at quiz night they served curried haggis and chips.  Even better! I understood that Haggis is banned in USA because it contains sheep lungs.

Haggis is ok provided its not overloaded with spices and pepper , some butchers seem to think they need to be almost like a vindaloo curry!!! , best Haggis I've ever had was in Mallaig out of the butcher there , worst was in my own home town , one of the local butchers must've added and added and added spice and pepper to the point it was inedible.

Reading the news today it does look like its the sheeps lungs that have been the problem but to be honest if thats the only thing they find "icky" to eat then god help them if the saw the full recipe for Haggis lol

A Haggis Ban! From being imported I take it? Never heard of it.

But at least I have avoided that culinary catastrophe. I think I go have another hot dog with sauerkraut and spicy yellow mustard instead.

Our favourite American comedienne Ruby Wax described the hot dog contents as "all lips and r-soles". She should know , her father was in the trade.  Try some English Mustard, a bit livelier than that custard-like stuff supplied on the U.S. hot-dogs. :P

I once encountered a uk hot dog stand that used English mustard instead of American, but had it in similar dispensers, now I like my mustard, so assuming it was the American spread the condiment nice and thickly.
On my first bite I realised the error, it was very nice, but I swear steam was still coming out my ears hours later. (it hadn't even been a conventional English pre-mix, but home done from powder.

Umm Mustard... Should be banned.. :}
 
And Marmite should be made compulsary to have.. :-)) 
 
Could not believe that my various relations across the pond had never had this, so I sent them all a small jar last year and then watched them on Skype eating it, faces were a picture..

Now that I am curious. What's the difference between American mustard and English Mustard?

Personally I use Gulden's Spicy Brown Mustard.
