Scottish recipe for September 2013 - 16th Oct 2013

Scottish tablet


420ml tin condensed milt
1kg granulated sugar
270g butter

Place all the ingredients in a large pan and bring to boil. Reduce the heat. Allow to simmer gently for about 30 – 40 minutes, stirring from time to time. As it begins to darken, it is essential to stir it continuously, and when it becomes a dark caramel colour it may catch on the bottom of the pan a bit, don’t worry, remove it from the heat and whisk it hard, preferably with an electric whisk, until the mixture cools and begins to thicken. Pour it into a baking tray measuring 30 x 21 cm.
Leave it to set for 10 minutes, then, cut it into squares or shapes. Leave it to harden then remove from the tray.

Scottish recipe for July - 26th Jul 2013

Stovies recipe Direct from Maw Broon's Cookbook - and in her words too!

Stoved tatties

Stovies- withoot the meat!


Peel the tatties and put them over a low heat with just enough water tae cover the bottom of the pan.  Add some salt and put wee dods of butter here and there.  Cover and simmer gently till soft and melted.  There should be no water left tae pour off. 
Dripping can be used instead o' butter but I prefer butter.  Fried onions are nice to add, with plenty of pepper.

Scottish Recipe of the Month - 16th May 2013

Scottish Recipe of the Month Quick Cranachan Pudding
If you're really pushed for time then this recipe from Orkney saves a lot of the toasting and is simple.  You do need to think ahead though, for overnight soaking of the oats.  

You will need

  • 2 tablespoons medium oatmeal
  • 2 tablespoons runny honey
  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange or apple juice
  • 300 ml double or whipping cream, or thick yoghurt
  • 110 g raspberries, or mixed fruit, eg banana, stewed apple, plus a few raspberries
The day before;  soak the oatmeal in the honey and fruit juice in a covered dish.

Whip the cream until stiff and fold in your chosen  fruit to the oats.  Chill in the fridge for a short while, or serve semi-frozen

World Famous in Dunedin - update - 13th May 2013

World Famous in Dunedin - update I survived!  It was very nervewracking to watch myself on TV3 last Friday evening.  I must thank Steve Wrigley and Ben Hurley and all the TV3 crew for the positive portrayal of The Scottish Shop.  I have had lots of interesting feedback from customers and sold lots of haggis.

TV3 visits The Scottish Shop - World Famous in Dunedin - 9th May 2013

TV3 visits The Scottish Shop - World Famous in Dunedin It was a nervous time for Scottish Shop staff and patrons when the television cameras came to visit.  Steve Wrigley & Ben Hurley filmed part of their World Famous Tour in the shop.  Set to be screened on TV3 on 10th May at 9.30pm.  The programme is titled World Famous in Dunedin.

There was a cruise ship visiting Dunedin on that day and I noticed some customers really enjoying the antics and laughter and some took one look at the cameras and made a hasty exit
