    My Private Note



    spotted ...

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Mix the flour, currants and grated suet (it should have the general consistency of mouse droppings) very lightly by hand.
    2. 2
      Moisten with a couple of tablespoons of cold water, enough to give a dryish pastry texture.
    3. 3
      DO NOT RUB, only stir enough to bind the ingredients together.
    4. 4
      The mixture can be put into a buttered basin and covered with first a layer of foil, then a cloth (tied on with string), but the usual way is to make a thick roll shape, and wrap it in buttered greaseproof (waxed?) paper, and tie into a cloth.
    5. 5
      Boil in a lot of water for two to three hours on top of the stove, or all day if using a crock pot.
    6. 6
      To serve, slice it into 1" thick chunks while still hot.
    7. 7
      Some people serve it with egg custard, but others consider serving spotted dick with moist brown sugar and a large spoonful of salted butter a must.
    8. 8
      Use both if you like.
