Stoatin' Scottish Scran
A soup made from smoked haddock, onions and tatties, probably one of the most famous scottish recipies.
Fae the Northeast oo Scotland, made oo the lefowers oo a sunday denner usually of a roast, it is common to have at events because it is easy and made in wan muckle pot. Usually eaten with oat cakes and picked beetroot, we'll show you how to make the pickled beetroot, oat cakes and the main stovie dish.
Scotland, because of it's harsh conditions has a challengingly short growing season, so there is a lot of use of preservatives and beetroot is a common side to any meal. During the session we will cook some beets, peal and store them with vinegar, each attendee will receive some beetroot that they pickled themselves.
These are also common and can be used in a variety of ways, eaten with cheese or just butter, but they are best to provide a crisp texture to an otherwise bland meal. It is traditional to prepare them on a griddle, but they can be baked just as easily in an oven.
