First, rinse the stomach thoroughly, and soak it overnight in cold salted water. After rinsing the sheep heart, liver and tongue, boil these parts in a pot of salted water for about two hours. Remove any gristle or skin and mince the organs.

In a large bowl, combine the boiled ingredients with 1/2 pound of minced suet, three minced onions, 1/2 pound of toasted dry oats, one teaspoon of salt, one teaspoon of ground herbs and half a teaspoon of pepper. Moisten the mixture with some water, then mix together. Remove the stomach from the cold water and fill it with the mixture to about 2/3 capacity, before tying or sewing it closed. So that the stomach does not burst during cooking, punch some holes in it with a turning fork.

Gently place the stomach in a pot of boiling water and cook it over high heat for three hours. It's recommended to serve haggis with a side of mashed potatoes.
