My wife was watching a baking show in which a Scottish guy attempted to cook a clootie. A what?? A clootie??? Never heard of a clootie! Apparently it is a suet dumpling, containing dried fruits (like raisins) and boiled in a piece of cloth (clootie means ‘rag’ or ‘strip of cloth’ in Scottish).
Clootie font is a handmade bundle of happiness. It is rounded, soft and legible and will look particularly good on book covers.
And I promise you all: one day I will cook clooties to find out what they taste like!
