Granny’s Clootie Dumpling – from Catherine Laing, North Uist

Posted by True Highlands in Scottish Recipes | 29 comments


I first tasted clootie dumpling as a child in 1955, the lingering memory is of watching my great grandmother collect the ingredients and the long, long wait for the first taste. The dumpling would typically make an appearance at particular times like weddings, New Year, when it took centre table, funerals or when there was plenty dried fruit available, but it was a staple and we partook as often as my great grannie would make one, and latterly my late aunt.
