Argh, I remember when my Granny made it like that for me. Argh disgusting!!!

Give to me with a truckload of brown sugar and a small pool of milk around it :).

I'm with Haggis! I like mine with butter, brown sugar, and milk.

I have chest made of Scots pine - not too big - about 3 ft high x 4 ft long x 3 ft deep. It is a family piece dating from around 1860... it was used by an ancestor who was at Glasgow Uni studying medicine - and he was sent off to college with the kist (chest) filled with oatmeal to keep him going for the whole term... dried oats, I mean, not ready made porridge! How he managed to carry it astounds me.... it's heavy enough with nothing in it - but then tradition states that porridge makes you strong!

My husband claims the Scots became so good at making whiskey because of haggis. You need a few shots before you can eat it!!!!
