Made scones again….
These scones are made with sultanas. I love to eat these! I actually make these quite often—sometimes plain or with sultanas or dried “red” blueberries, whatever I can find in the local shops here in Piedmont. Scones are best eaten with clotted cream and strawberry jam. Here in Italy we don’t have the luscious clotted cream that you’d find in Cornwall and Devonshire, England. But just topping them with creamy butter is good too. Perfect with freshly brewed black tea!
Scones should be eaten straight out of the oven—fresh baked and warm! So, it’s definitely homemade scones that are the best to eat—you can’t get them this fresh from a bakery and certainly not in the supermarket!
Of course, the BEST scones I ever ate were in Britain, not to mention how wonderful the tea is!
