As much as we Scots love to kid on about our "wee highland beastie" Here are the facts about our beloved Haggis:

The Real Haggis

Haggis is a kind of savoury pudding.

Made from: sheep's 'pluck' (heart, liver and lungs),

 minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, and traditionally encased in the  animal's stomach ( now usually plastic) and traditionally a large haggis would be simmered in water for approximately three hours.

You can actually cook in the microwave after removing the plastic skin and metal end clamps ( cut up the haggis to spread around the dish). Nowadays you can also buy microwaveable haggis in a pouch.
