Cloot is the Scottish word for Cloth As traditional as haggis, porridge or Oor Wullie, a Clootie dumpling is a Scottish fruit pudding that is cooked in a unique way. Most people only have a distant memory of their mother, grandmother, or great-grandmother spending hours creating this delicious pudding.
Due to time constraints today, few people have the time available to practice the art of Clootie making.
All ingredients, once mixed to the perfect consistency are placed in a freshly boiled Cloot (cloth) that has been sprinkled generously with flour and the mixture is shaped into a ball. The flour is what forms the delicious “skin” around the outside of the Clootie dumpling. Once the Cloot has been tied, the Clootie dumpling is carefully placed in a large pot of boiling water.
The clatter and bubble of a Clootie pudding in a pan can warm a person faster than any radiator. It fills the kitchen with a warm aroma of sugar and spice.
