Clootie Dumpling, or Clootie Pudding sounds like a made-up thing, but no, it's real. Clootie Dumpling is a traditional Scottish pudding, considered a pre-cursor to the English Christmas Pudding. It contains dreid fruit, apple, flour, suet and egg plus a few other things. It needs to be boiled in a cloth for about 4 hours, and that's where the name comes from: 'cloot' is 'cloth'. After boiling, it's then placed in the oven to dry out and form a glistening crust for a while. Clootie Dumpling is quite easy to make, although it does involve a lot of waiting-around time.
