New shop opening soon - The Clootie McToot Dumpling Shop, Main Street, Abernethy, Perth.

Do you know what a Clootie Dumpling is? Clootie dumpling, is a Scottish fruit pudding, cooked in a unique way. All the 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 dumpling. Once it’s been boiled hours, it’s dried off in the oven, before being served with custard, cream, ice cream or bacon and eggs.

You can now purchase this old favourite made the traditional way in a variety of sizes 400g, 800g, 1.2kg and 3kg. Available to order are Dairy, Gluten and vegan friendly dumplings. Check out our webpage or Facebook page or visit the shop to taste some samples.

For the more adventurous person you can purchase Clootie McToot Dumplings with a modern twist i.e. Apple / Pear and Cinnamon, Chocolate Orange and Baileys, Rhubarb and Ginger, Damson Plum and Gin, Lemon and Pimms, Strawberry and Prossecco, Whisky and Orchard Fruit.
