Haggis Is Questionable… But Would You Want To Try It?
Haggis is probably a dish you’ve heard of before and are interested in trying, but you’re unlikely to find it anywhere in America. And that’s because it’s a pudding made from the organs of sheep, namely the lungs, liver, and heart. You add spices and oats to make the dish more palatable. However, what really makes it haggis is that this savory pudding is also inside a sheep’s stomach.
For that reason, it’s unlikely that the FDA will ever consider it safe for consumption. This is strange because stomach linings encase sausages and other animals’ organs are common for other dishes, such as the stuffing in turkeys at Thanksgiving. So, what exactly makes haggis so different? No one is entirely sure, but it’s unlikely that any kind of petition to get haggis on the menu will be persuasive enough to the FDA.
