And alongside the "noble beastie" and spring cabbage I'll be doing Orkney Clapshot.....recipe follows
An Orkney recipe that's perfect with Haggis (or anything else for that matter!).
Enough for 3 or 4
1 pound boiled potatoes
1 pound boiled turnip or swede
2 tablespoons chopped chives or finely chopped spring onions
Salt and pepper
2 ounces butter
Cook the potatoes and turnip separately.
Beat the two vegetables together while still hot.
Mix in the butter, chives and seasoning.
Stir over heat till it is piping hot before serving.
Information on Burns.......the man behind "the night", just in case you're completely confused by the reference!
