What is a Clootie Dumpling?
The first published recipe of the Clootie Dumpling dates back to 1747. A Clootie Dumpling is a wonderful Scottish fruit pudding cooked in a unique way.
Once all the ingredients are mixed to the perfect consistency, they are wrapped in a freshly boiled ‘Cloot’ that has been sprinkled with flour. Cloot being Scots for cloth. The flour is what forms the delicious ‘skin’ around the outside of the dumpling after it has been boiled.
The clatter & bubble of a Clootie Dumpling in a pan and the warm aroma of sugar and spice will ignite your taste buds.
