Some love it, some hate it , some haven't even tried it
and there is them who haven't heard of it at all.
We used to have it for our dinner in the seventies,
cheap and good and very child-friendly
We used to mash out potatoes in it
and the taste was salty and spicy,
and no need to chew
It's the Haggis of Norway
made of meat, heart, lungs and other stuff from pork, lamb or cow.
(Lungemos means mash of lungs,
maybe that's what putting people off?)
Today I got a surprise at work.
A colleague brought me a book,
which she had got from someone.
Since I am a anglofile Norwegian girl
who loves to cook and bake, this was a treat for me!
A book about traditions, reciepes and little anecdotes..
Crumpets.. The first time I went to visit my husbands family I got these round strange things, full of holes, warm and dripping with butter in what would become my mother-in-law's kitchen. I might not try to make them, but there is other things in there like scones, mincemeat pies, fruitcakes, tarts, biscuits and cucumber sandwiches.
