Scone Construction?

Asked by markferg (1877 points ) January 31st, 2011

Should you put the clotted cream on first, or the strawberry jam? I’m a jam person but my wife is a cream person.

I can take it either way, but I prefer creamy jammyness rather than jammy creamyness.

Put it on the way YOU like it, then have her taste it blindfolded. OR, “whoever makes ‘em gets to pick the filling order”

I like it with the clotted cream first and then the jam, but there is no single right answer.

I would love it if the cream wasn’t called “clotted”.
That just makes something yummy sound very yucky.

I like the jam first then the cream soaks into the already jammed scone.

I have to agree with @wilma. “Clotted cream” doesn’t sound like something that I want to put in my mouth.

Why not do half one way and half the other way? Then everyone’s happy.

I like to do the jam first and then the cream. It seems more structurally sound that way.

No cream. I’m dairy intolerant. But for those who have cream I think the best way is with the jam first and the cream on top

Clotted cream? Not sure what that is, and it might be good. But it sounds bad. It’s the word clotted that is the issue.
So, I will stick with jam, since that makes me think of strawberry jelly or marmalade.

Clotted cream is a very thick unsweetened cream, similar to creme fraiche. Kind of like whipped cream but thicker and not as sweet.
