Burns Night celebrates the life and poetry of the Scottish poet Robert Burns. Rabbie Burns, as he is affectionately known, penned more than 550 poems and songs before his death in 1796.

At a Burns Supper, Haggis is usually served (piped in with bagpipes should you own them!) with ‘neeps and tatties’ or swede and potatoes, mashed together with plenty of butter.

This Dairy Diary dessert, using Scottish whisky, is a perfect Burns Supper pud.

 

RECIPE

 

Following the meal; recitals of Rabbie’s poems and then a rousing rendition of Auld Lang Syne finishes off the evening.

Enjoy your Burns’ Night folks and Lang may yer lum reek.

World Whisky Day

Celebrating World Whisky Day, the Dairy Diary way!


Did you know?

  • Whisky or whiskey is a distilled alcoholic drink made from fermented grain mash.
  • The smoky flavour found in some types of whisky, especially true of Scotch, is due to the peat smoke used to treat the malt.
  • Whisky is most often aged in wooden casks, often made of charred white oak.
  • With a value of £4.359 billion (2017), Scotch whisky exports accounted for over 20 per cent of all UK food and drink exports.
  • Some 34 bottles of whisky are exported from Scotland every second.

Whisky in Gaelic reads ‘uisge beathe’,
which means ‘water of life’

We will be celebrating World Whisky Day in the Dairy Diary office by baking these gorgeous Dundee Marmalade Flapjacks, and making our very own  Whisky Marmalade. Absolutely delicious!
