How to make Haggis from scratch

Ingredients

1 sheep's stomach or ox secum, cleaned and thoroughly, scalded, turned inside out and soaked overnight in cold salted water

heart and lungs of one lamb

450g/1lb beef or lamb trimmings, fat and lean

2 onions, finely chopped

225g/8oz oatmeal

1 tbsp salt

1 tsp ground black pepper

1 tsp ground dried coriander

1 tsp mace

1 tsp nutmeg

water, enough to cook the haggis

stock from lungs and trimmings

Preparation method

Wash the lungs, heart and liver (if using). Place in large pan of cold water with the meat trimmings and bring to the boil. Cook for about 2 hours.

When cooked, strain off the stock and set the stock aside.

Mince the lungs, heart and trimmings.

Put the minced mixture in a bowl and add the finely chopped onions, oatmeal and seasoning. Mix well and add enough stock to moisten the mixture. It should have a soft crumbly consistency.

Spoon the mixture into the sheep's stomach, so it's just over half full. Sew up the stomach with strong thread and prick a couple of times so it doesn't explode while cooking.

Put the haggis in a pan of boiling water (enough to cover it) and cook for 3 hours without a lid. Keep adding more water to keep it covered.

To serve, cut open the haggis and spoon out the filling. Serve with neeps (mashed swede or turnip) and tatties (mashed potatoes).

This is how to cook salmon. You can pan-fry it (start skin side down, etc etc) but there's no point. Chuck it in a tinfoil pouch with lemon and maybe a little butter and bake that poo poo.

I'm thinking about making beef wellington for christmas dinner. It's a ton of work but man is it worth it.

We are discussing, specifically, 2.0 promised features versus delivered. Do we really have to resort to dozens of nested quotes to keep statements and questions in context, here?

You said all promises, I was working forwards in time from 2013 from their 1st hangar release as that seems more logical to me. I dunno why you'd want to defend the feature list of 2.0 considering it's not even been released officially yet to the live servers. They might add some real persistence to it in a patch today, maybe SATA Ball too, that can't be far off can it?

I think you're too hard on CIG sometimes, it's almost as if you think 2.0 is done for now and they just rushed it out in a cynical attempt to sell stuff.

Throw it in a pot, fill it up with water, put it on the heater and make boiled potatoes for the side-dish.

If you are feeling super adventurous, season it with some salt.

None of the features were delivered, because they don't work.

The 2nd drop of the Hangar release was meant to arrive ~9 weeks after the original release in August 2013, it was meant to include the ability to visit other people's hangar's. It's now 27 months since the first hangar release, when can people visit their friends hangar's and therefore maybe not feel the need to buy their own Phoenix?

Glad you're here doing this Octopode I have a few dozen other such promises I want explained too if you have time.

I'm still looking for the following promised features that were supposed to be released:

- Gold Horizons station

-Sataball or whatever that poo poo game was called

- Ender Arena

- Two factions, order and outlaw

- 3 types of armor for each

- All the multiple pistols and rifles, and grenades shown in the demo

- Graphics on par with what we were shown instead of dull, bland textures.

Social Module/Planetside released since August. In the same shoddy manner as 2.0. Still shoddy. No word on "visiting hangar".

Oh, but they released buggies (<----- LOL!) to the hangar though. So does that count? I mean, we've had some hilarious posts, GIFs and everything since then. Oh, it's still not fixed btw and everyone seems to have forgotten about that - and the buggy mess that is AC 1.x due to them now focusing on the new buddy module du jour, PU 2.0

Obsidian put out Pillars from start to finish with a little more than that... They could have been sitting on a mountain of cocaine in Orange County spending that much per month on a game they never finished.

The guy was moving around @ about 900 m/s. Circling the moon in 120'' means that the moon is about 10-15km in radius or so?
In ED, moons look the same when you circle strafe them, but you do it at ludicrous speeds and distances (at least until tomorrow, when Horizon drops).

And you can circle strafe the moon in that game.

Have in mind that the gameplay value of arbitrary distance/size differences of balls in space is very low. This was just an observation from that video.

Double Chocolate Banana Tart

For the caramelized bananas
- 1 ripe but firm banana
- Fresh lemon juice
- 1.5 Tbsp unsalted butter
- 3.5 Tbsp sugar

For the bittersweet ganache
- 0.5 lb Bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
- 1 Cup plus 2 tbsp heavy cream
- 4 Tbsp unsalted butter, cut into pieces, at room temp

For the tart shell
- 1.25 Cups AP flour
- 0.25 Cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 0.25 Cup confectioners sugar
- 0.25 Tsp salt
- 9 Tbsp unsalted butter cut into small pieces and very very cold
- 1 large egg yolk

For the banana topping
- 0.5 cup apricot jam, strained
- 2-3 ripe but firm bananas
- Fresh lemon juice

Tart Shell:
- Combine flour, cocoa powder, confectioner's sugar, and salt in food processor and pulse to mix.
- Scatter the pieces of butter over the dry ingredients and pulse until the butter is cut in coarsely
- Stir the yolk and add it a little at a time, pulsing after each addition
- After the egg is in, process in long pulses until the dough forms clumps and curds.
- Turn the dough out and knead to incorporate any extra dry ingredients
- Press dough into buttered 9-9.5 inch fluted tart pan, prick all over and freeze for at least thirty minutes
- After freezing, butter a piece of aluminum foil and press down snugly against the crust
- Bake for 25 minutes at 375 degrees, remove the foil (and press the crust down if it has puffed) and bake for another 8 minutes
- Allow the crust to cool to room temperature

Caramelized Bananas:
- Cut the banana into slices and toss with lemon juice
- Place skillet over high heat and melt butter
- When the butter is bubbling, add the banana slices and turn to coat
- Sprinkle sugar over bananas and cook over high heat, turning, until they are golden brown and caramel coated
- Transfer bananas to parchment lined plate and pat gently to remove excess butter
- Allow to cool to room temperature

Chocolate Ganache
- Place chocolate in heatproof bowl
- Bring cream to boil and pour over chocolate
- Let the mixture sit for 30 seconds and then gently stir until combined
- When ganache is smooth and shiny, stir in butter piece by piece

Tart Assembly:
- Arrange cooled caramelized bananas in cooled tart shell
- Pour chocolate ganache over and gently wiggle tart shell back and forth to settle
- Place tart in fridge and allow the ganache to set for 30-60 minutes

Banana Topping:
- Bring apricot jam to boil
- Peel bananas and toss with a tiny amount of lemon juice
- Once the rest of the tart is assembled and cooled, arrange bananas in concentric rings and glaze with hot jam
- Allow glaze to cool, remove sides (and bottom if possible) from tart pan and serve

Is delicious and looks like this:

Well yeah, that's been my point. Though unlike Octopode, SA newbie Iglocska, did a very good job (with my directions for clarity) of making his point. So, between him and the two other White Knights, I think we can look forward to more balanced arguments going forward.

Hopefully, I think the whole thing is like you can't see the forest for the trees. It matters more how it is than what they promised.
