Highland Festival


Recommended Posts

This afternoon we went to the Rio Grande Celtic Festival. It includes the highland games of throwing the caber, stone put, hammer throw, weight throw, weight over the bar, and some others who's names I'm not sure. Essentially anything which can cause a hernia or a thrown out back :o

I got brave and tried the Haggis, pretty good but very spicy. Hey I've eaten stranger things in 21 years of traveling around the world for the Air Force.

The type I had was beef,  minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock and stuffed into a sausage skin.

Traditional Haggis is a savory pudding containing 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. Sound nasty but I've been told the traditional is very good.

I'm adventuresome when it comes to food, I tried Bloodwurst in Germany, tava (stew with lamb or goat) in Turkey, balut (pickled fertized duck egg) once in the Philippines, lots of alcohol involved and would never have it again. I always tried the food from countries I was in.
