    n : haddock usually baked but sometimes broiled with lots of
    butter [syn: finnan haddock, finnan, smoked haddock]

    Finnan haddie \Fin"nan had"die\ [See Haddock.]
    Haddock cured in peat smoke, originally at Findon (pron.
    f[i^]n"an), Scotland. the name is also applied to other kinds
    of smoked haddock. [Written also finnan haddock.]

    Creamed Finnan Haddie

    ingredients

    1 pound finnan haddie
    2 tablespoons Mazola
    2 tablespoons Argo or Kingsford's Cornstarch

    To prepare this Creamed Finnan Haddie Recipe, first pour boiling water over the finnan haddie, let stand two or three minutes, drain and flake. Add the Mazola, then the cornstarch, and seasonings and gradually stir in the milk. When boiling, add the parsley or onion juice and serve on toast, split Tea Biscuit, boiled rice or with boiled or baked potatoes.:eek::eek:

    Something else that escaped my mind was kidneys .My aunt had a dish she would make thankfully not very often.She would buy a bunch of calves kidneys because they were one of the only meats available at the time. she would boil them to flush out the calf urine .The smell of boiling calf's urine would fill the kitchen and drive the kids out into the snow .

    After they cooled she then peel the outer membrane and sliced them up and made a brown gravy and pour this brown crap over toast.I just about gagged every time I ate that stuff but foods food and either I ate that or went hungry .Now days I would enjoy an English Steak and Kidney pie.
    We all have our childhood terror stories. Mine was mashed turnips. Oh, the horror. My folks had a simple rule: you take it, you eat it. How often I scooped up some fluffy mashed.....something, only to find it was turnips.
