Burns Night

I cooked haggis, neeps and tatties last night for Burns night. Everyone (English) thinks neeps are parsnips with  Scottish accent but they are swede or turnips.  Clapshot is the name of the traditional Scottish dish from Orkney that is served with haggis. It is made by mashing swedes, turnips and potatoes together with chives, butter and salt and pepper. I’ve been making various versions of Clapshot for years with even knowing it!
