On Tuesday we're celebrating Hogmanay and January 25th is Burns Night so I ordered two American haggis from Scottish Gourmet USA. One of these days I think I'll try making my own. Maybe for next year.

Others will be providing the rest of the board with traditional Scottish fare:

  • Cockaleekie Soup
  • Neeps and tatties (Rutabaga and potatoes)
  • Bannock bread
  • Venison pies and Forfar Bridies
  • Rumbledethumps
  • Sweets - Cranachan, Burrebrede (Scottish shortbread), Black Bun and Tipsy Laird Trifle
  • Whisky and Ales


Then we do it all again for Burns Supper on Burns Night.

Since I have to arrive early with the haggis I'm never the first foot. That's usually left to a designated relative of the host.

Venison, Sweets, Whiskey and Ale was all I understood in your post.

You can do a search on the internet for the rest [emoticon] I had to learn about it all a few years ago and found a ton of info on the internet. Rampant Scotland is a good place to start.

If you ever need to communicate with a genuine Scot, here is a handy English to Scottish translator that might help. http://www.scotranslate.com/

For example, I've run your comment above through it, and it suggested this:

"Ye kin dae a search oan th' inturnet fur th' rest ah hud tae learn aboot it a' a few years ago 'n' fun a ton o' info oan th' inturnet. Rampant scootlund is a guid steid tae stairt."

It was the most successful Hogmanay yet. 138 people came and our friends' house was packed. Word has gotten round. Good thing they have a large home.

There were 3 pipers there which means they stood on the deck playing with the windows open so guests can hear the music without needing ear plugs because of the decibel level. With all the food everyone ate their fill and then took some home. No one came empty handed. Fortunately there were 20 lbs of haggis or there would not have been enough. Four of us each brought a 5 pounder and everyone had a taste. But there were calls for more so it looks like we'll need to bring 40 lbs next year.

All in all a very satisfying Hogmanay.

I've purchased from SGUSA before, and find their fare very good. Did you find that the burning juniper branch took a while to air out after the saining?
