How to properly eat a scone?

Recommended Posts

No butter as cream replaces it .  Always clotted cream  . If you are just having scones and jam then yes, butter always

Thank you to EVERYONE!!  I have chuckled my way through this thread!!  And, in pantomime, practiced each and every process mentioned!


At the end of April, I'll board on a voyage to NYC -- and I can't wait to have a Tea Time and just watch everyone!!!  I may not have time to eat...

Candid confession:  During the TA Eastbound crossing at the end of Oct, '18, I casually engaged a different group each day during Tea Time aboard the QM2 asking the very questions put forward in this thread.  By day three, the staff was fully on to my game and played along as perfect foils and masters and mistresses of. misdirection.  The debate each day was predictably  vigorous, with absolutely not a single person changing his or her mind.  No blows were struck, although one elderly very English gentleman from Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire, did, on our last day at sea, call me a "Gxx dxxx colonial" for asking the questions. My thanks to Deereke for more than once bringing me a day-old scone that readily fell apart whether broken apart by hand or cut with a knife.
