Baltimore Jack gave me a bag of this stuff to try and I was certain it was going to taste like plastic or something worse, but it was great:

I just discovered it at Walmart this morning and bought some for my Maine section hike in a week. I was afraid that it might be awful also. Good to here your recommendation. I may have to go back and buy more now.

Have fun hiking. And if you are going to try and ration it out over the hike it may not work. HOI and I killed the bag pretty quick.

Wendi, yes Kenny and Lynn are going. We are doing Monson to Stratton and Andover to Gorham. The Andover to Gorham will finish the trail for Kenny and finish Maine for me.

Dammit I wish you could. Where are you hiking? We are leaving May 18. We are gonna freeze our ass off, wade through mud and be eaten alive by bugs. Not a bad trip.

Headed to Bham on the 17th to visit with T's parents then off to N. GA thru Memorial Day. Stopping in Picayune, MS on the way back to help the Venture Crew at camp for the rest of that week. Taking a bunch of teens on their first overnighter! (3 nights actually)

I will look for this product.

SGT Rock says it goes well with grits and coffee. Hmm-What DOESN'T go with bacon, grits OR coffee? I saw bacon touted with ice cream and chocolate recently, grits with shrimp were a fad for cocktail parties, and coffee lovers with drink it with nearly anything. Heck, I'll chew coffee beans in the AM if I don't want to take the time to brew coffee. (Chocolate covered and with craisins preferred.)

The questions become, why didn't this make it to the market sooner and why is it not universally available?

Haggis is damned good. Kind of like braunschweiger meatloaf. Seriously, if it's not overdone, it's very good.

Sort of, except liver mush is usually fried. Haggis is a bit more tender, and it's basically steamed inside a bladder.

It makes me wonder what the first person to eat that stuff was thinking. Was he drunk, was it a dare, was he starving? Did he really think that was a good idea? I have a freind who was a LRRP and only ate rice balls and sardines for his whole tour so his body would give off the right smell. That makes sense but haggis never made sense...or maybe I've just never been drunk enough.

But there are modern uses for it ... I mean, besides a possible trail name.

I figured its been around a long time and as hunters, wanted to use all of the animal, but didn't know or understand the how... Interesting history here:

didn't notice that - it appears to be a veg. that is renamed in EU:



Swede

Not the sexiest of vegetables, swedes are a cross between turnip and a variety of cabbage. Although treated as root vegetables in the kitchen, they are not truly so because the part of the plant we eat is really the bulbous base of the stem. The circular ridges you see at the top of the vegetable indicate where the swede's leaves were. The skin is yellowy brown at the base with purplish tops, and the flesh is starchy and sweet tasting.
Also known as rutabaga in the USA, and confusingly as turnips or 'neeps' in Scotland, swede took its English name around the 1780s when Sweden began exporting a lot of its crop.

In the kitchen
The most famous swede dish is the 'bashed neeps' served with haggis is Scotland. Swede purées well and in combination with root vegetables makes delicious, sweetly nutty mash. It also works well mixed with root veg and onions in beef or lamb stews.

However swede can be simply boiled or steamed and dressed with olive oil or butter, roasted like potatoes, or sliced and fried with garlic until browned, then sprinkled with salt and pepper and Parmesan cheese. You can also eat it raw as crudité or shredded in salads.

Varieties
The yellow-fleshed variety is most common, however white-fleshed swedes are available. The smaller the swede, the more watery the flesh will be. For mashing, try to choose the drier large varieties.
