Clootie Dumpling Explained

As part of our ongoing exploration in to Scottish foods, Orla’s grandparents, Kate and Rod , came to class to explain how to make a clootie dumpling. Rod told us all about his family recipe for this delicious Scottish food. We saw all the ingredients, his recipe and got to taste a dumpling. Kate taught us a song about dumplings.

We loved smelling and discussing the different ingredients and learning all the steps in making a dumpling in a “cloot”. Most of us tried a piece of Rod’s wonderful pudding.

Emilie spoke for many when she said  “I think your dumpling tastes fantastic!”.

Our thanks to our wonderful visitors!
