Wullie's very big on plums, would that be Hoi Sin sauce? Watched Nigela Lawson (take one very tight jumper!) making stewed plums on french toast, must try it! wullie.

Wullie ,
filo pastry is tissue paper thin . It comes pre-rolled , in packets .
Layering it up in the way the recipe describes makes a very light flaky pastry shell .

I think I will have to buy a tin of Grant's haggis , a packet of filo and a jar of plum sauce sometime very soon

Plum Sauce (Chinese) and Hoi-Sin aren't the same, though both are delicious and are often used as alternatives to each other in dishes like Peking Duck, Aromatic Duck, Sio Mai, Char Siu Pau, barbecued suckling pig etc. (God I miss the Far East !)

I reckon Hoi-Sin would be worthy of a try with haggis. Spicier (more caramelly) than plum sauce.

Filo is available here by the mile, but for single skin wraps, wonton or lumpia wrappers might be worth a try (wonton wrappers aren't the same thickness as *lumpia wrappers)

*lumpia = Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore
lumpiang = Philippines.

PS lumpia/lumpiang wrappers can be deep fried or steamed - eg Phils recipes fried = lumpiang shanghai, steamed = lumpiang sariwang

Maybe some Japanese Plum wine with some of this?

I may have to hit the Oriental market in Portland next trip! (wonder if I can get a Haggis there! LOL)

The filo thing sounds much the same idea as a haggis pie, these are excellent.
This years Scotch Pie Champions are Irvine's of Beith in Ayrshire!
wullie.
