Mike Clark’s recipe for stovies – the Scottish comfort food par excellence!
“It’s mid afternoon and the sky is dark grey. The rain hasn’t let up, and it’s cold as well as miserable. Fancy a salad, anyone? No way! Let’s have some good old British stodge. These dumplings are cheap, quick and easy to make, and add a nice touch to any casserole.” Kay shows how to make dumplings – even if you can’t get hold of suet where you are.
“Have a haggis bag (ie a sheep’s paunch) perfectly clean, and see that there be no thin part to it, else your whole labour will be lost due to its bursting.” Meg Dod’s prize-winning haggis recipe – strong (sheep’s) stomachs required!
These are easy to make and tasty with any roast dinner.
