A delicious traditional Scottish pudding that's boiled not baked or steamed. This Clootie has been made gluten free and dairy free using my own suet recipe
Tie the corners in place, allowing a little room for expansion. I use a cable tie to secure mine if we don't have any string in the house!
Place the clootie parcel onto of an upturned plate in a large saucepan, this is to stop the dumpling from sticking to the hot bottom of the pan.
Using a recently boiled kettle pour enough liquid to just cover the dumpling. My largest saucepan isn't quite deep enough, so I never quite manage to cover the dumpling completely. Adding a lid will prevent the top from drying if this happens to you.
This keeps really well and we were still eating it 4 days later ... delicious!
