haggis -

Haggis is a dough made from the innards of lamb chopped together with onions, oats, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with a little broth, wrapped in a sheep's hull, then boiled at a temperature below the boiling point of water for three hours. Modern haggis is usually wrapped with materials other than stomach.

Larousse Gastronomique explains that although this food is not derived from "fun", it tastes pretty tasty. Haggis is a national food of Scotland and a main dish at Burns (Burns supper).

Haggis is available all year round in Scotland, and the real haggis made of sheep offal and wrapped in animal hulls, has a higher price. The cheaper haggis is usually mass-produced from pork innards and wrapped in ingredients other than animal hulls.
