Tripe with Tatties (Potatoes)and Onions
(Toronto, Ontario Canada)
This is definitely an aquired taste but growing up with my born and raised Scottish Parents also from Falkirk Sterlingshire, we had this once in a while and I loved it. Years later, I found my Mum's recipe and now make it on occasion for my ailing 80 yr old Dad and me.
1 lb. Bleached Honeycomb Tripe
600 ml. Milk (1 Pint)
3 Medium Onions (roughly chopped)
3 Tbsp. Flour
1 oz. butter or Margarine
I Bay Leaf
Sprinkle of Parsley
Pinch of White Pepper
6 medium Boiled Potatoes (can be halved or quartered)
- Cut Tripe into bite sized pieces and place in pot of cold salted water.
- Boil for 15 mins.
- Remove from heat place tripe in colander to drain.
- Rinse in cold water.
- In pot place tripe, onions, bay leaf, nutmeg and pepper in enough milk to cover.
- Bring to a boil, reduced heat to medium and
- cook for approx 2 hrs or until tripe is tender.
