What's in
the bags

Bag contents for the week beginning 21 January 2019

It's Burns Night this Friday 25 January, a celebration of the life and poetry of Scots poet Robert Burns. For dinner on Burns night, people traditionally eat haggis, a savoury pudding containing sheep's offal mixed with onion, oatmeal, suet and spices (though these days, vegetarian versions are available), served with neeps (mashed swede) and tatties (potatoes). Check out the (very easy) recipe. For the full Burns Night experience, it should all be washed down with whisky and accompanied by bagpipes.

Please note these are the provisional bag contents and actual contents may vary. Wash all fruit and veg before eating.
