It has come to my attention that some citizens do not know what haggis is. Thus, I direct you here for the 'amusing' Stupid Tourist version, and under the cut for the real thing, unless you are of a nervous of vegetarian disposition.

1 cleaned sheep or lamb's stomach bag
2 lb. dry oatmeal
1 lb. chopped mutton suet
1 lb. lamb or venison liver, boiled and minced
2 c. stock
sheep heart and lights, boiled and minced
1 large chopped onion
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp. allspice
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper

1. Toast oatmeal slowly until crisp.
2. Mix all ingredients (except stomach bag) together; add stock. 3. Fill bag to just over half full, press out air, sew up securely. 4. Have ready a large pot of boiling water.
5. Prick the haggis all over with a large pin so it doesn't burst. 6. Boil slowly for 4 to 5 hours.

Needless to say, the veggie version is a lot nicer.

That takes care of the 'haggis' question. Those of you who need a definition of 'cookie' may consider their citizenship revoked.
