Clare's Mam has never experienced the delights of tattie soup, bannocks and reestit mutton. So we thought we'd best give her a taste of our own before she goes mid-week.
The first we've had this winter and very nice it was too. What was even nicer for me was to have twatree bottles of a little beauty I discovered at the Co-op; Innis & Gunn Oak Aged Beer
Now I like a beer now and again, but my belly doesn't, so usually in an aid to conserve world wide stocks of loo roll I do without. I had intended to brave a bottle of Shetland's own Valhalla Ale with this special tea until I saw the Innis and Gunn (of Edinburgh). A lovely drink it was to accompany the making of soup and bannocks as well as the eating; honey smooth and nice to sup. It also aided me in a leisurely post-tea snooze and so far my bowels are loving it too!
Not totally sure if it really is a good or bad discovery so I may have to try it again just to be sure...
