Jam first or cream!!!

After our recent stay in Cornwall we've now moved to East Devon.  Our last Cornish Cream tea was at Healey's Cyder Farm..... yesterday we visited Budleigh Salterton, and whilst walking along the front came across a 'beach cafe' that also served cream teas.  We just couldn't resist.  I decided to try putting the cream on first and spreading the jam on top - the Devon way!  However, after having got in a bit of a mess with it, I reverted to the Cornish way - jam first with the cream on top.  To be honest  I find the Cornish way much more intuitive and less messy.

.......so which way do you prefer:  jam first with the cream on top (Cornish) or cream first with jam on top (Devonish).

I'm impressed, Brian. 😀  I think I'll keep the Snowdonia Cheese to have with cheese biscuits though, and perhaps some relish.  I generally prefer 'sweet scones' with jam and lashings of Rhodda's....  with the jam on first.. 🤣🤣

I too hate Chips in Beer now at that price ABM. Pickled Onions repeat on me and that would be the worst thing that could happen......................repeating Fish & Chips in Beer at £14:85 yell

I'll be making cheese scones for the Jubilee celebrations.  I make mine with a 50/50 mix of tasty Lancashire and mature Cheddar.  As a savoury filling I'm going to offer cream cheese and tomato chutney.  Cream cheese or chutney first? smile

laughing cool  That's just for those who prefer a savoury scone.  I'll also be doing the more traditional scone with jam and cream ....... or cream and jam ......wink
