WE CAN'T WE JUST CAN'T FRIDAY FUNNY

Canned Haggis
We will admit, with apologies to our friends across the pond, that Haggis is one of those things we are pretty sure we would never want to try.  

And then we saw these at the grocery store the other day...CANNED Haggis.  In beef AND in lamb.  

Offal in a can?

Nope, we still can't, just can't do it. 

Any haggis fans out there?

the blog tech and i went to a scottish festival and ate fresh haggis a few years ago. it wasn't too bad.

I would never eat it, but if I knew where to get it I would buy it and wrap it as one of my sister's Christmas presents. We wrap our most regrettable food find every year and give it to each other. So far the canned sausage I found wins hands down, but I believe canned haggis could beat it. (One year I never found anything really gross but I found a fake campbell's soup label on line and printed it, then wrapped it around a can of mushroom soup. The label? Cream of Possum Soup. Yes I am nice like that!

Linda said...

Yup! Had the canned stuff at a Scottish Festival and the genuine article in Edinburgh! Tasty!!!

Practical Parsimony said...

That is on a list of things I have never tried and never will. I am so relieved you did not partake! I feel gaggy just thinking about it. I, too, would like to find cans of that.

a Scottish dish consisting of a sheep's or calf's offal mixed with suet, oatmeal, and seasoning and boiled in a bag, traditionally one made from the animal's stomach. No Thank You. I'll pass on this one.

Recipe if any interested. :} https://recessionbitesblog.files.wordpress.com/2014/01/haggis-recipe.jpg

OMG it's my ancestry but I refuse to consider trying it...I think canned haggis would have me heading to the "lavy"....lol...

Em said...

If it was fried maybe.

Elephant's Child said...

I think offal should be canned. And remain in the can.
One of the few food battles I won against my father (house rule was you ate what was put in front of you) was when I refused to eat any more tongue because I could feel it tasting me as I was tasting it.

anne marie in philly said...

"Offal in a can?" - howsabout AWFUL in a can! YUCK!

donna baker said...

A turd would look as good as a big gray bloated haggis bladder. The thought of a tongue makes me ill. I've heard cow eyeballs are a delicacy around Del Rio. Hope I never get that hungry.

Janie Junebug said...

No. Never. Absolutely not. I can't believe anyone sells Crap In A Can.

Love,
Janie

It is rather tasty actually. We would have it at 'Clan Nights' and it was just like a bit of stuffing really. Mind you, that's the real thing not something in a can.

Texas Rose said...

This is NOT on my Bucket List!

Cathy Mccraw said...

NO, NO,NO. I also don't eat chitlings, tongue, or hogs head cheese. My grandmother put the eyeballs in her homemade souse as she called it. I have a friend who eats haggis, the real stuff, but he is a little odd, lol.

Teacats said...

Ooo aye! I ken it weil! (I know it well!) Its lovely stuff - along with piping hot strong tea, bread and kippers for brekkie (breakfast) and tongue sandwiches with guid (good) dark bread for tea. Mum (my auld grannie came from Burns Country Near Prestwick) also loved blood sausage! LOL!

Linda said...

Thinking about this makes me realize being deathly allergic to mammal products might be a good thing after all.

Marcia said...

We are headed to Scotland in late September. I may have to try it once.

kymber said...

it's in jambaloney's ancestory - him being a MacKenzie and all. he ate it in his younger years when it was made from scratch - he'd try it in a can because - hey spam! me - i'd rather eat one of my cats!

you guys need to get a can....bahahahahaha! and then report back to us! i mean it - don't wimp out on me!!!

sending much love to you both, as always! your friends,
kymber and jambaloney

The Stay @ Home-Gardener said...

No no no no. I'll stick to a giant pot of veg and spuds, TA!

1st Man said...

ha!!!

1st Man said...

I "MIGHT" try fresh but it's 50/50, ha.

1st Man said...

I'll see if I can get a can for you if you want, just let me know. What a great gift exchange idea how funny I bet that is. LOVE IT!

1st Man said...

Gulp?!? Really?

1st Man said...

LOL that made us laugh!!!

1st Man said...

Um, yeah, no. There is no way to even describe it and make it sound good, ha.

1st Man said...

Yeah, it's bad enough fresh but canned? That's why I had to post it, ha .

1st Man said...

Hmm, now I could perhaps do that but still not sure.

1st Man said...

I had a tongue (called "lingua") taco and it was good. Then when I found out what it was, I just couldn't. I said the same thing, I don't know if I want to taste something that could taste me back, ha.

1st Man said...

Funny how "offal" rhymes with "awful", ha.

1st Man said...

LMAO!!!!!!!! :-)

1st Man said...

Well that's a new description, ha.

1st Man said...

Really? Well, yeah, I might consider fresh, but yeah canned just takes it to a whole other level. And not a good one, ha.

1st Man said...

Throw up bucket maybe? HA!

1st Man said...

Um yeah, those are some other things (of several) that are on our NO NO NO list, ha. eyeballs? No way.

1st Man said...

Well, hello! Sounds like maybe we are missing out on something and should give it a try? Or maybe we just should have grown up with it, ha. Sounds like you have some great memories for it. Blood sausage not sure I'd try that but maybe....

1st Man said...

Hey, that's a great reason if anyone ever wanted to make you eat it, ha.

1st Man said...

Yay for you! That's supposed to be an incredible trip. Can't wait to see pics on your blog. And yes, maybe ask around who has the best and then try it. When in Rome...er, Scotland.

1st Man said...

I don't think there is any way I could try that. I just don't' have that in me. It already makes me gag thinking of it. I'm good!!! Tell Jam I'll send him a can if he wants!

Speaking of "spam", I DO love that stuff, ha.

1st Man said...

Are you sure?????? LOL! I understand, 100%!!!!!

Anne in the kitchen said...

If you can get one that would be fantastic. I would probably have years of winning with that!
