Scones

What is a scone?

Something you eat or something with which you are crowned.

How do you pronounce SCONE?

99% of Scots pronounce "scone" to rhyme with "John" - see study. But the proper name (as in Scone Palace) rhymes with "June".

Jam on top or cream on top?

Tristan: Growing up I spent most of my summers in Cornwall, but I prefer the Devonshire method (jam on top), albeit with Cornish cream. But in St Andrews a high tea involves scones with no cream at all - sacrilege!
