Treacle Scones

My husband has told me many times about the traditional Scottish treacle scones his Granny Murray would make fresh for him served warm with melted butter and an extra helping of treacle. I hope that these are slightly close to how she made them, they certainly taste delicious!

Steamed Lamb Pudding

This traditional Scottish Lamb pudding is actually based on a very old Scottish recipe for a mutton pudding. So if you can get your hands on mutton I would give it a go with that but lamb is really delicious and works really well in this recipe with the addition of potatoes and onions.

Scottish Potted Trout

This is such a delicious traditional Scottish recipe for potted trout and very easy to make. I like it in the Winter months but it is equally good in the warmer months too. It travels well and goes nicely with toast, crackers and oatcakes. We enjoy it on toast triangles with a bowl of warm Scottish soup in the witner months and with a salad in the summer.

Forfar Bridies

These traditional Scottish Forfar Bridies orignate from Forfar in Scotland. They are a traditional meat pastry which is thought to date back to the 19th century and thought to be served to the bride on her wedding day, hence the horseshoe shape. Another story is that they were made by a lady called Margaret Bridie and got the name from her. I guess we may never know the true origin of the name but they sure are delicious!

Scottish Clapshot

I love this simple but classic Scottish dish from Orkney its so easy to make but such a satisfying side to have next to a hearty stew at this time of year. I used my neep carvings to make this when I made my halloween neep. It took me ages to carve by hand but it was very satisfying being able to eat this after all the hard work. Just so you know neeps are just turnips and tatties are potatoes, just in case I forget and call them neeps and tatties.
