    If your going through Foveran (north of Aberdeen) stop in to the farm butchers there "The Store" and get there own haggis and black pudding.. .yummmmmmmm much better than the comercial brands.
    Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

      The haggis segment starts at 3:44.



      I'm wondering if you could primal-ize the recipe just by subbing white rice for the oatmeal?

      Two recipes:

      Actual Scottish Haggis - how to make it

      A home-made haggis for a Burn's night dinner - Wilmington Irish Food | Examiner.com - this one uses less oats and cooks it in a casserole dish rather than a stomach.
      "Right is right, even if no one is doing it; wrong is wrong, even if everyone is doing it." - St. Augustine

      B*tch-lite

      Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

        Hi skinnybuddah, I'm sure there are butchers in Inverness that make far better haggisses with local ingredients than any you can get in the supermarket. If you are that concerned about the oats you could ask them to make you one without?

        (I am not bothered by oats so I happily chow down on haggis whenever I get the chance... I love traditional specialities and a haggis is a lot more acceptable than a buttery!)

            I would be okay with white rice, but the sheep stomach would be hard to find.

              Salisbury and Waitrose both carry it though I haven't bought any since i cut out grains. When I fancy it next i suppose it could be my 20% and i could have it with neeps and carrot mash
              When I'd had enough of the grain and starched based 'diabetic eating for health' diet (eating for health, my ass!) my weight was 242.5 lbs. On starting primal- 18th April 2013 weight : 238.1.
              27th July 2013. weight after 100 days 136.9 weight lost 101.2lb ; that's 105.6lbs since I stopped the 'diabetic eating for health'

                I buy haggis (usually for my dad who loves the stuff) from Findlays themselves - they're a butcher in Portobello (Edinburgh). I'm not sure if it is stocked elsewhere, but they do mail order.

                Can't beat Stornoway black pudding...love the stuff. I buy it once in a blue moon - although Findlay's black pudding is pretty good too.

                I'm with ya on the black pudding....again same concerns eh, but I'm so looking forward to being in Harris again this year where I can breakfast on stornoway blackpudding and handdived scallops....

                I'm keen to be as strict as I can to be honest, although I may keep out wheat/flour/breads 100% and allow a couple of treats like haggis and blackpudding a couple of times a month..

                  Cheers for all the good info guys.....You know, I never thought of asking a butchers to make me a haggis without oats.........although much like fifer noted earlier, I'm kinda prepared to let it go with the idea that the good far outweighs the bad (oats!) and I don't seem to suffer from any intolerances to a small amount.

                  Theres a fine butchers in Dingwall, called Cockburns who definately deserve a mention, I believe they were once a "haggis champion"

                  Still amazed at our fantastic local seasonal produce, yet so much of the population stills sit on the NHS obestity timebomb

                    Findlays do a gluten free haggis - although I'm not sure what they use to replace the oats. They also do fabulous gluten free sausages. I'm really lucky to have such a great butchers close to me that specialises in local, grass fed produce...it's not hugely expensive either. Well, more expensive than a normal butcher, but not excessively so - and they're happy to slice dice and cut whatever you want them to.

                    Interesting point about local produce...for a while I signed up to a local veg box (before I went primal) but got mighty fed up of spuds and swede for about 6 months of the year. I'd never get fed up of carrots but it seems that for a vast part of the year most of the local produce consists of root veg only. I was also amazed to go into the supermarket at the weekend - during the height of the asparagus season and discover the produce in there was from Peru! Needless to say, I didn't buy it!

                              I think I could probably fake it by sewing up a ground meat mix in a piece of tripe. Alas, even if I were there, I cannot eat oatmeal either.

                                Oh yes but did you check out the wild venison haggis for only 10p more than the usual one!

                                The key to it (apart from the oatmeal...) is the lights, plus very hard back suet for fat, plus the proprietary "secret" spice mix. In a stomach.
