Haggis, Anyone?



Actually, Beverly Cruthirds, a volunteer for this weekend’s Clanjamfry on the grounds of Evergreen Presbyterian Church, was unsure if this infamous Scottish delicacy would be available at this year’s festival. Seems sheep stomachs aren’t always easy to come by around these parts.

There will definitely be meat pies, however, and the very popular shortbread.

“It’s just wonderful,” says Cruthirds of the shortbread. “We had to keep people out of the kitchen to prevent them from eating it all.”

Saturday’s faire is from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Sunday, following the Kirkin’ o’ the Tartans church service, there will be a traditional Southern supper on the lawn around noon.

Also happening this weekend: the Southeastern Indian Heritage Festival & Craft Show at Chucalissa.

According to Alex Hutson of Chucalissa, there will be fry-bread and something she calls an “Indian taco” as well as vegetarian Native American dishes.

In addition, there will be hominy-cooking demonstrations. Hutson says the hominy-cooking takes a ton of water and a ton of time. The hominy will be started around 8 a.m. and will be done around noon.

The Southeastern Indian Heritage Festival is Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m.

BTW, both festivals will have American food as well. Yep, that means hot dogs.
