Scone or Scon? Cream or Jam first

Pronouncing it Scone or Scon...

and is it Cream or Jam First?

It’s ridiculous how many column inches (and even scientific studies, I kid you not) that are devoted to the topic of the pronunciation of the word Scone AND whether the correct way to eat it is by putting the cream or jam first on to your treat. 

I’m involved in a twitter group called @CreamTeaHour (Thursdays 8pm) and almost always, no matter what topic we’re supposed to be debating, it comes back to arguing over Scone/Scon and Cream or Jam first.  It’s vehement stuff too!  I’m sure wars have been fought over less.

Unfathomable to Overseas Visitors

What must overseas folks think of us?  I’ve never yet seen Americans arguing over the order of mustard or ketchup on their hotdogs.  

For a start, there’s the misconception that a Cream Tea involves putting cream into your actual cup of tea. Oh dear.  And let’s not even touch on the problem of calling Afternoon Tea ‘High Tea’.  Sigh.

But furthermore, overseas people have invariably never even tasted Clotted Cream and have no idea what that treasured treat is in the first place. 

Rodda is one of our treasured UK companies making Clotted Cream in Cornwall. Here's a link to their processes.

Furthermore 3 times when I’ve been in North America, I’ve been offered marmalade instead of jam with my scones (uh oh). Also, what we Brits call a scone and what other nations call one, is somewhat different too…and biscuits fall into that debatable category as well!  Evidently, it's a confusing topic!

Come on over, the kettle’s on

Really, the best thing is for us to invite everyone over here so they can taste and adore the real thing. 

Tea pot, tea, milk, no cream - The English Cream Tea CompanyPlump, fluffy scones with lashings of fresh and crusty clotted cream (yes, they won’t even know about the crust, will they?) and the best of fruit-filled jam to pile on too.  Words like dollop and ‘cakey tea’ - we’ll translate it all by demonstrating the delights of enjoying a cream tea, including the fact that we should be breaking our scones in half, not cutting them with a knife. Ahem!

Jam first, Cornish way, scones by The English Cream Tea Company

So, are you

  • A cream first on your scone sort of person (like people of Devon)...or
  • A jam first sort of scone-eater (like those from Cornwall)
  • Someone who says Scone that rhymes with stone...or
  • Scon that rhymes with gone

Whatever your answers are, we've plenty to share so book a flight and head to Great Britain for this amazing treat!

Oh and if you want to stop the squabbles and know the definitive answers, here’s the link to the oracle.

If you would like more information about the great tradition of Afternoon Tea or The English Cream Tea Company, please contact Jane and Roger on 01279 876661, visit the website or email.

У нас более 961 интернет-магазина с кэшбэком до 90%, вывод денег на любые платежные средства от 2х центов. Кэшбэк - это вознаграждение за покупки, которое наш сервис выплачивает вам, за то, что вы совершаете покупки по правилам в представленных у нас на сайте магазинах. Слово «cashback» пришло к нам из английского и дословно звучит как "возврат наличных". Сейчас этот термин, как правило, используется в качестве обозначения разновидности бонусной программы денежных возвратов, используемой для привлечения клиентов и повышения их лояльности. Давно используется в банковской сфере (кэшбэк с покупок по кредитным карточкам) и относительно недавно в Интернет-торговле.</a>
