Clootie McToot Traditional Dumplings

“Clootie McToot" dumplings are lovingly prepared, following my family's traditional recipe. This recipe has been passed down the generations and is now kept safely with me in my home in Old Abernethy. Abernethy was originally the Southern Pictish capital of Scotland and the village sits on the borders of Perthshire, which is route to the Highlands, and Fife which is on the banks of the beautiful River Tay. There is something nostalgic about a Clootie McToot dumpling. It has a flavour and texture that takes you back in time. Lovingly prepared with carefully selected ingredients, boiled to perfection then vacuum sealed for freshness and long life. These lovely, old-fashioned puddings are bursting with Scottish charm! They are a genuine taste of Scotland. You can order online or visit our shop at 59 Main St, Abernethy - our shop is open Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday 12:00 - 4:00pm.

Please see our SHOP PAGE for details of our mouthwatering 'Festive Flavour' range available as well as ordering date details - Our shop will be reopening 31st January 2019.

History & Folklore

Of Scottish Clootie Dumplings

The original " Clootie" had charms and coins added into the recipe so that diners would receive a piece of luck for the future. Finding a coin would mean wealth, a ring signified marriage and a wishbone promised the finder their heart's desire. The man who found the button and the woman who found the thimble would stay together. Unfortunately, this is the one part of the recipe we currently miss out. Once you have tasted our Clooties we hope you find Clootie McToot to be your future favourite pudding.
