How to eat a scone
Instead of cutting the scone in half, break it off piece by piece. Spread it with clotted cream and then jam. Or jam and then clotted cream. Why not try both in turn? It’s time that Great Aunt learned just what a rugged individualist you are.
Crust or No Crust?
Guess what? It’s entirely up to you. The Duchess of Bedford, one of the first people to popularise afternoon tea as a social occasion, had the crusts cut off hers; so if emulating Victorian aristocracy is your aim, go right ahead and excise. If cutting sandwiches into fingers, crusts don’t help. If triangles, either works.
