I know they ain't everyone's idea of good eats, but I sure do like 'em!
Hope to have the opportunity someday to try haggis, 'course there is a very long list of foods I would like to try afore I shuffle off this mortal coil, as they say.
For some strange reason, it is illegal to make and serve Haggis in the United States. Guess you will have to go to Scotland. What a hardship that would be. To travel and eat new foods.

That sounded so odd I had to look it up. It has been illegal to import haggis since 1971. It's illegal to use lungs for human consumption, so any haggis made in the US isn't quite authentic, if it's legal. Whodathunk it?

Oddly enough, I only read that yesterday. Surprised me also. The article I read had a picture of it. Sure didn't look appetizing.

I recently read that about haggis. I reckon I ain't sophisticated enough to understand the reasoning. But who knows, one of these days I might be able to travel to Scotland for an authentic taste of haggis. On the other hand, I 'spose I could make it here at Casa de Hoot. 'Course, I would be the only one to eat it.

If they're doing menudo for their family they should make a batch for their customers as well, and have them only that day of the week.
Many places that serve menudo don't serve them daily, but usually on weekends only.
They great for hangovers.

You mentioned that she makes it on a Sunday for her family. Are they open to the public on Sunday? If not would she be willing to make it Saturday for the public? That for some strange reason is the day it seems to be most popular day for the public to hanker for it.

Steve was also surprised about Haggis being outlawed in this country, as he ate it in Scotland many years ago and wasn't really impressed one way or another.

I wonder why lungs is such a "no no" as it seems to me Americans ingest every other part of an animal, if we know it or not.

lungs were made illegal because testing revealed unacceptable levels of possibly dangerous stomach contents and brain matter in the lungs after slaughter, and that because of the surface area involved, lungs were more likely to harbour bad icky stuff.
i've also read somewhere that uncooked lungs can pass on tuberculosis.

Sounds like some very odd slaughtering that gets brain and stomach contents into the lungs.
