1. Preheat your oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C/Gas 6. Remove the plastic wrapping from each haggis. Wrap the haggis in foil and set them in a deep roasting dish. Pour in enough water to come about half-way up the sides of the haggis. Slide into the oven and bake for 30-40 mins.
2. While the haggis cooks, peel and cut the swede in to 1cm-thick cubes, and place in a large pan. Cover with cold water and add a pinch of salt. Bring to the boil and simmer for about 20 mins, or till the swede is tender when pierced with a knife.
3. Meanwhile, peel and chop the potatoes into large chunks and place in a separate large pan. Cover with cold water and add a pinch of salt. Bring to the boil and simmer for 15 mins or till the potatoes are tender when pierced with a knife.
4. While the veg is cooking, make the whisky cream sauce. Peel and finely chop the shallots. Melt 1 tbsp butter in a small pan then add the shallots and thyme leaves. Cook on low for 5 mins till glossy. Add 2 tbsp wholegrain mustard and 4 tbsp whisky. Cook and stir for 1 min, not letting the mixture boil. Pour in the beef broth and bring to a simmer. Add 100ml double cream and heat till warmed. Taste and add more whisky, if you like. Pop on the lid to keep warm. This will be a thin sauce, so thicken with a little cornflour if you prefer.
5. Drain the swede and potatoes, shaking off as much excess water as possible, and leave to steam dry for a few mins in the colander. Meanwhile, finely chop the parsley leaves and thinly slice the spring onions, discarding the roots and any ragged greens. Tip the cooked veg into 1 large pan.
6. Add 2 tbsp butter to the pan, along with 2 tbsp double cream. Add plenty of salt and pepper with a good grating of nutmeg. Mash till everything is combined – the mixture will be slightly chunky. Stir through most of the chopped parsley and sliced spring onions. This is your parsely clapshot.
7. Serve the haggis spooned over the clapshot, garnished with more parsley and spring onion, with a side of greens and lashings of the creamy whisky sauce.
