On Sunday I cooked dinner for 2 dear friends, a married couple, who are leaving me this coming weekend as they move south on a new venture – leaving MA for new jobs in GA. I’d been promising them for ages that I’d cook haggis, so it was now or never!
I spent a lot of time living in different parts of Scotland throughout my working life back in the UK, & I love all things Scottish – including haggis! A few years back I discovered a company, in Texas of all places, that sells canned haggis, & they have a convenient online ordering system too.
I was a bit skeptical at first – dodgy enough risking buying haggis outside of Scotland anyway, but to order the canned stuff too. I was certainly taking risks at this stage. You can get a spectrum of haggis that ranges from “awful” to “fantastic” haggis, but let me tell you that this stuff from Texas is very fine indeed! I was just amazed at how good it was when I first ordered it a few years back, & I’ve used the same company multiple times now – it’s been consistently good. My friends loved their “haggis, neeps & tatties” dinner anyway, it was a big hit!
I also made some chocolate truffles for dessert & I thought I’d share the recipe with you – it’s very simple, just how I like my recipes. I made way too many – I ended up packing most of them up to send in a care package to M. Naturally I saved a handful for me though!
These are amazingly tasty treats for such a simple recipe.
