Unknown Scottish and other.....endangered species!

Everyone knows the Scottish whisky (the single malts 'Glens' above all) the Scottish fresh salmon and smoked salmons, the Arbroath kippers and so on, but what about some almost forgotten things like 'Clootie Dumpling' which was a treat back in the late 40's and 50's for christmas and birthdays. Birthday cakes didn't exist to buy and were normally too complicated to prepare so - a Dumpling was required!
To know what I'm talking about here's a photo: Image result for clootie dumpling recipe without suet  It was also used in Scotland very often at Christmas to replace the 'Plum Duff'  Image result for Plum Duff of English origin, together with the 'custard' or as the French say 'crème Anglais'
The Scottish variety was also used the morning after sliced into thickish slabs and fried - in margarine because we had no butter, rationing forbid it!
The clootie dumpling is a delice, the main thing is having a cotton cloth big enough to put the mixture into for steaming for hours! Here is the recipe:

There are other things which have fallen out of favour, like Bread and Butter pudding, again made with bread (old) and margarine (no butter available!)

A last one, often used as a trick question in trade examinations, Scotch - not a poultry, but an entrée made of scrambled eggs on toast with anchovies laid on top!Image result for scotch woodcock

 This can also be used as a main course.

Bonne Appétit!
