Clootie Dumpling

Clootie Dumpling

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.

    A great alternative to Christmas Pudding – full of flavour but nice and light too.

    A really scrumptious beautifully packaged little taste of Scotland. I look forward to ordering some for myself and gifts for Christmas..

    As I’m the only one in our house that eats Christmas pudding, I’ve been looking for a festive alternative that me and my family can all eat together on Christmas Day, and this is it!! Deelicious!!

    Saving the dumpling for later but 5* for the Bannocks. Eat at any time but, perfect food for taking on the hills

    Bought as part of a selction of “goodies” from Alex Dalgetty for a belated Burns Supper the Clootie was served to our friends south of the border and the immediate reaction was “oh Christmas pudding” – how wrong they were
    Served with thick cream they all said it was less rich than Christmas pudding and all the better for it
    Very enjoyable and recommended

    Excellent little clottie dumplings, filled with nostalgic memories.
    A real reminder of Scotland.
