Tour Scotland Food Fortune Telling Crowdie

Scottish Fortune Telling Crowdie.

A coin for wealth
A ring for marriage
A button for a bachelor
A thimble for a spinster
A wishbone for your heart's desire.

Small silver charms were stirred into this dessert. Each charm had a special meaning. The dessert was eaten on the night of Halloween and each guest would hope to find a favourable charm in his or her portion.

Two ounces (50 g) of lightly toasted medium oatmeal.
A half a pint (300 ml) of double cream.
One ounce (25 g) of caster sugar.
One tablespoon of dark rum.

Whip the cream until it holds its shape. Stir in the sugar and rum and whisk again until thick. Gently stir in the toasted oatmeal. Chill well. Serves 4.
