On Burns Night time, many households throughout Scotland get pleasure from a “Burns Supper” for his or her dinner. 

A Burns Supper consists of haggis (spiced meat encased in animal intestines), neeps (turnips), and tatties (potatoes). Whereas it is hottest on Burns Night time, my household eats haggis a number of occasions a 12 months, and it could actually often be discovered served at eating places any time of the 12 months.

Some individuals may also select to have a Burns Supper on St. Andrew’s Day, Scotland’s nationwide day, which falls on November 30 yearly.

Conventional haggis has been banned within the US since 1971 as a result of the recipe contains sheep lung. However you may get a vegetarian model of it in some shops, in accordance with iNews, in addition to variations that omit the banned ingredient.
