All of our pies, scones, tea cakes, meats, and puddings are frozen at the height of freshness. For many shipping orders the food may be thawed upon arrival, that's ok! Unpack your boxes and get them into the freezer and store them until you're ready to enjoy.
Our baked goods are all fully cooked and should be reheated.
For the best results, please avoid using the microwave. Oven or Air Fryer are much preferred.
All items can be refrigerated for 1-2 days, or frozen for up to 12 months. If you receive a shipping order, we recommend freezing all savory items immediately. All items - except Shortbread - should be frozen.
INDIVIDUAL SAVORY PIES & SAUSAGE ROLLS
For best results, we recommend thawing pies overnight in the refrigerator before baking.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Bake for 15-20 minutes or if items are frozen, 35-40 minutes. If frozen, items should be covered in foil for the first 20-25 minutes of baking.
Our pies can also be reheated in an air fryer. Given the discrepanices between air fryer performance, we cannot give overarching recommendations for all air fryers.
STEAK PIES (Seasonal - available November through January)
If frozen, defrost in fridge the night before heating.
Preheat oven to 325°F. Place on a baking sheet.
Add 2 tablespoons (or more depending on your preference) of water, red wine, dark beer, or Bisto through each hole in cover. Bake for 45 minutes. For best results, cover pie with foil until there are 10 minutes left in baking time.
We do not recommend reheating Steak Pies from frozen.
If frozen, defrost in fridge overnight before heating.
Preheat oven to 325°F. Wrap haggis in foil and place in
baking dish. Heat for 90 min. per pound of haggis. Internal temperature should be at least 165 degrees fahrenheit.
BLACK PUDDING AND MEALIE PUDDING
If frozen, thaw overnight. We recommend slicing the puddings into 1-1.5 inch pieces and pan frying the pieces in butter or oil. Alternatively, if the puddings are frozen, you can steam them whole. DO NOT STEAM THE PUDDINGS IF CUT.
BANGERS, SLICED SAUSAGE, CUMBERLAND SAUSAGE
These items are RAW and must be cooked prior to eating. Our sausages are versatile, so any preparation will suit them. We love to grill our sausages, but traditionally, they are pan fried.
NEEPS AND TATTIES
Preheat oven to 350°F. Remove cover. Heat for approximately 30 mins or until heated to your liking.
Scones can be thawed and eaten at room temperature with clotted cream and jam. Alternatively, scones are wonderful toasted. A few minutes in a toaster oven will warm them nicely. If you prefer scones more toasted, then toast to your preference.
FRUITCAKES, IRISH SODA BREAD
These items are excellent served at room temperature. They're also perfect for slicing and toasting. It's really up to you!
ECCLES CAKES AND CURRANT SQUARES
Due to the sugar on top of these items, thawing and enjoying at room temperature is best. You can heat or toast, if you'd like, but be careful not to burn the sugar.
