    And the haggis is sitting in the fridge, I skinned it and now don't think I should have? Do I now put it in the oven or a pan of water with some nips whatever the hell they are. Or just take it outside and give it a descent burial.

    I wrapped mine in foil and then cooked it in an oven dish with a bit of water in the bottom. I left mine intact but im guessing as long as it is cooked thoroughly and wrapped in foil to hold it together it should be fine. I think you can slice it up too and cook it in the microwave so all is not lost just because it is skinned.

    Shouldn't have skinned it unless you are going to microwave it. We always microwave ours as its a lot quicker but we eat the southern softies vegetarian ones not the catfood ones so not sure if they microwave well or not!!!!

    I thought a Scot or two might have replied, maybe they don't cook. Can't find a spoon stirring smiley so:reel:

    Put it in the microwave until heated thoroughly and serve with mash, sweed / turnip and a good helping of whisky. Then have some more whisky to help remember the good times :)

    Haggis is the original 'boil in the bag' food.

    Now its out of the 'bag' dont boil it, even in foil.....You'll end up with a plate of runny slurry.
    Though maybe you could steam it but it will still be a bit damp.

    The word is NEEPS....aka, turnips.
    Swede will also pass muster.
    Either one mashed and served with mashed spud.

    Oooooh please, wish you haven't said that. I never eat anything with a list of ingredients. This was a present ! And I'm up to a challenge and my OH eats tripe and other stuff I wouldn't know how to cook.

    If you haven't got any neeps to hand, mashed carrots do just as nicely.

    You do know you can make a sporran out of the skin don't you?!

    They are much nicer if you roast them, and the skin needs to be left outside for a few weeks before it grows enough fur to be a decent sporran........

    Having cooked a few Neeps for the Burns night celebration, I can assure you that Neeps are Swede not Turnip!!
    Had I made the mistake of confusing Neeps with Turnips and presented the same on Burns Night, to my Scottish cousins I might not be writing this now.

    A Turnip has white flesh and a Swede has yellow flesh.

    Apparently the word "Neeps" is short for New Turnip, which is a Turnip crossed with Kale, also known as Swede!

    I love Burns Night! Not just for the food and Whiskey but also for the address to the ladies and the reply.
    Each year it is a challenge for those nominated, to come up with something new, which also has to be humorous!

    So why arent they called weeds then ?
    Which is what i said....a turnip.

    A swedish turnip, posh name is rutabaga
    In Scotland, it is known as turnip, and in Scots as tumshie or neep.

    But whatever, mashed carrot is no substitute for either. :D

    stop it now! you are making me so hungry and we have cupboards like mother Hubbards here at home at the moment :( . I love haggis and turnips/swedes. You are making me want to jump in the MH and head up to Scotland.
