bung the jam on first and it's easier to drop the cream on top.  you can have more jam that way too. Grin

Re: Jam / Cream or Cream / Jam?

I like Cream then Jam as I can see how much jam I have got, but every time I try and put more jam on it pushes the cream off.
So I have to put jam then cream

Jam then cream is the official Devonshire way.  At least, that's what a girlfriend from Okehampton told me.....

Re: Jam / Cream or Cream / Jam?

Hope I`m not overstepping the mark here..... as an Ex Traditional English Tea Room owner..... the following might tie the three threads together.
A traditional cream tea consists of  1 or 2 scones, Jam, and cream or butter if requested, plus the traditional china tea service.
Tea is served by putting a small amount of milk in the cup first, then the tea is poured in...... this is the traditional way, since the early china tended to crack when hot tea was put directly into the cup, the milk reduced the initial temperature thus saving precious china cups.
Scones are pronounced SKONS by "normal" people who wish to enjoy an "upper class" type refreshment, however, the "upper class" have always had a way of talking and pronunciation that made them "different" from the general masses !.
Scones are usually served warm, and sliced in two, horizontally, if butter is supplied, some would put butter on each half, then jam and then cream.  if no butter, then the jam first,  then the cream is the "correct" and "traditional" way to eat them.
Although the pic is called Parish Pump..... the building in the background is the Tea room

Re: Jam / Cream or Cream / Jam?

Doh! I've been sitting here for half an hour waiting on my mug of Plusnet i-tea to come winging down the line and out of my CD tray.
Tell James from me that if his Mum catches him with her tights around his head like that, he'll be in Dire Straits.
