2. Wash puck then boil for two hours with windpipe draining over the side of pot. Retain one pint of stock.
3. Cut off windpipe, remove surplus gristle, chop or mince heart and lungs, grate best part of liver (about one-half).
4. Parboil and chop onions, mix suit, salt, pepper and stock to moist.
5. Pack the mixture into the bag - allow for swelling. Boil for three hours, pricking regularly all over.
As above but place a medium sized rock in the pot and bring to a boil. After three hours, take out the complete sheep's bag c/w contents - throw it in the garbage disposal and eat the rock.Clan MacIvor observes:
Jesus, about the only thing missing is road kill.
