Recipe For Pomegranate Scones

Did you know that a scone is a quick bread? They are made using flour and leavening, or in this case, self raising flour. Scones should be slightly sweetened and glazed. In Devon and Cornwall they are an integral part of afternoon tea. The only difference being whether you put the jam on before or after the cream!

Head straight on to the recipe for Pomegranate Scones ♥

When Dave and I were on honeymoon in Florence we stayed in an hotel where the water temperature was affected whenever someone else in the place was using the cold water. At first I though this was due to the mixer, but after moving rooms I realized it was a problem in the accommodation itself. If we encounter the same issue in a place we are staying we refer to the facilities as a Florence shower. I think that this is one area that people offering accommodation to paying guests should take a close look at. At home we have a thermostat on our shower mixer. This ensures that no matter what happens in the house water wise, the shower temperature remains the same. It also has a pressure regulator. The other thing to look at in my opinion is the shower head itself.

Personally I don’t like the rain style ones. We have a very simple shower head that blasts the water out at a decent pressure and it uses less water per minute than the average shower head. This means I don’t have to run around the shower trying to get wet. We stayed in 3 different places last month, and this was my standard complaint in all three. It made me glad to get home to my own shower, and to my own kitchen as there is just so much eating out one can do. The first thing I made were these pomegranate scones. The idea came to me on a whim and I can say they were seriously tasty and worth making again.

  1. What is it about Italian plumbing? And plumbing in general in the Northern Hemisphere? I think it’s about tight arse proprietors who want our money but are nor prepared to provide decent facilties. As to scones… jam first, then cream. I don’t mind butter, then jam but only ever on warm scones. Thanks for including me in the link up (and sorry it took so long to comment – I have a lot of catching up to do!)

  6. Well, I just eat my scones plain so I can’t answer your question! Anyhow, I’m always saying I wish a blogger would come up with a pomegranate pie, but pomegranate scones comes very very close! So eager to try these. Love pomegranates so much, and the anti-oxidents are awesome. And Devon and Cornwell is my Dream trip! Someday.

  9. It depends on the consistency of the jam and cream. I prefer cream to be thick and jam to be more runny (like a home made one with less pectin) so in that case cream first 🙂 how about you?

  12. Hi Tandy, your scones look delicious, we never use cream on them did not realize that’s what others do. Sounds like a great way to enjoy them. If I did add cream I would add it after the jam. Have a great week-end!

  13. What a great way to use my favourite fruit! I put the jam on after the cream, in case it is runny so it doesn’t fall off.
