Meat.World's picture
  Lambs stomach 1 Large
  Lamb liver 2 Pound, membrane removed
  Lamb heart 1 Pound, fat, tubes and fibrous tissue removed
  Lean boneless lamb shoulder 1 Pound
  Oatmeal 1⁄2 Pound
  Suet 1⁄2 Pound, finely chopped
  Onions 2 Medium, finely chopped
  Salt To Taste
  Cayenne pepper To Taste
  Boiling water/Meat stock 4 Cup (64 tbs)
  Milk 1 Cup (16 tbs)

Put the lamb meats on to boil, covered with cold water.
Let the meats poach for one and one half hours, then remove them from the pot.
Reserve the cooking liquid and leave it to cool.
Grate the liver and finely chop the heart and lean lamb.
Spread the oatmeal out in a roasting pan and put it into a preheated 350° F. [180° C] oven to toast for 20 to 30 minutes, stirring it occasionally to color it evenly.
Put the liver, heart, and lean lamb into a bowl with the minced suet, onions and toasted oatmeal, and season liberally with black pepper and salt and a pinch of cayenne pepper, if you like.
Mix well and add enough of the cooled cooking liquid about 1 cup [1/4 liter] to give the mixture a smooth, soft consistency.
Use the mixture to fill the stomach rather more than half full say five eighths leaving the stuffing plenty of room to swell.
Sew up the stomach securely and place the haggis on a rack set in a pot.
Add enough boiling water to submerge the haggis (the milk can be added to the water) or, better still, add stock.
Over high heat, return the liquid to a boil then reduce the heat to low.
As soon as the haggis begins to swell, prick it all over with a skewer to prevent it from bursting.
Adding boiling water as required to keep the haggis submerged, simmer it, uncovered, for six hours.
