50 pounds of Haggis – from the butcher to Chinatown

Where do you get your haggis from?

I have bought my haggis from Peter Black & Sons, at Park Royal in West Vancouver since 2000, with the exception of 2001, which I regretted. So every year in early January, I phone up Peter Black & Sons to put in my order – or they phone me to confirm. Or as was the case this year, they made up my usual order, then told me it was ready.  They are great people.

Frozen raw haggis, without the casing.  We take a bucket of haggis to the restaurant, and they use it to make the haggis won ton and the haggis pork dumplings.

Deep-fried haggis won ton!  yum yum….  Now the finished product looks inviting… next step: dip them in sweet sauce!
