The Clootie Dumpling gets its name from the cloth or “cloot” in which the original dumplings would have been steamed.
Made with sultanas, cherries, raisins and vegetable suet, Clooties are similar to a Christmas pudding, but a little less rich.
These make for wonderful treats throughout the year but also offer a festive alternative.
Our dumplings are steamed for several hours in our Scotch oven to ensure that the full flavour of the original recipe is retained.
Each pudding provides approximately 4 generous portions.
