More Scottish Food with the Outlander Kitchen Cookbook


Gyspy Stew



A few months ago I took a DNA test and after getting back the results and doing research on Ancestry.com and help from my Uncle Jim, I have found out that I'm Scottish on both sides of my family.  On my mom's side is Clan Campbell.  I don't know much about Scottish history yet but quite a few Scots moved to Ulster, Ireland for quite a while before moving on to America which mine did.  So, I guess that would make me Scots-Irish on that side.  On my dad's side is the Clan Buchanan.  Our family name was Gibson but turns out that they were a sept of the Clan Buchanan.

Scottish Food

Mince and Tatties


Ready for some more Scottish food?  First off is Mince and Tatties which is basically Scottish comfort food.  Meat in gravy with some veggies over mashed potatoes.  What's not to like, right?  I did some searching and found a lot of Scottish families use Bisto granules to make the gravy.  I wanted to be as authentic as possible so I ordered some from Amazon.  It worked great and was so easy.
