Cloudy morning got you feeling bloody glum? Not to worry, chap! Cheer up with a hearty dose of … um, heart. Tartan Week, Scotland’s tourism promotion, arrives to bag-piping fanfare, bringing with it a street cart dishing out free haggis to daring diners. What’s haggis, you ask? A sausage-like dish not for the faint of “heart”:
There are many recipes, most of which have in common the following ingredients: sheep’s ‘pluck’ (heart, liver and lungs), minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, and traditionally boiled in the animal’s stomach for approximately three hours.
Sounds pretty offal.
The “Eat Like a Scot” free haggis cart is operating Friday, April 4th & Saturday, April 5th, 11am-5pm at the corner of 52nd Street & Broadway.
