Course: Main

Servings: 6 people

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

  • Reestit mutton -
  • White cabbage - (finely chopped)
  • Carrots - (finely chopped)
  • Neeps - (finely chopped)
  • Potatoes - (Kerr Pinks or Rooster, diced)
  1. Boil the reestit mutton in plenty of water for 10 minutes.
  2. Pour the water off and discard. Place the reestit mutton in fresh water, bring to the boil and boil for 15 minutes.
  3. Take the water out and put it in another pan along with the chopped up ordinary white cabbage. Boil for 15 minutes.
  4. Add the diced carrots and neeps, and boil for 10 minutes. Some folk add diced onion at this stage, Kevin says, but he doesn't as "it gives him the heartburn".
  5. Dice up the potatoes and add to the pot along with the chopped up reestit mutton. Boil until it's ready!
