Sampling the scones!

We sampled another batch of fig jam today.  I made scones specially for the taste testing.  Sometimes I use a lemonade scone recipe but these were the real deal made with butter and milk, done proper!

The double-cream was a serendipitous find in the fridge.  Fancy forgetting that was there, eh?!  (I dolloped it generously with a dessert spoon, in spite of Nick's suggestion that a teaspoon would be more appropriate)!

Oh, and the verdict?  Not bad.  Not bad at all.  A very successful first batch of sweet fig jam - and the scones were pretty good too!
