It’s a short churn from cream to butter. Cream first, do you jam then butter bread?
The correct way to eat a scone is in halves i.e open top - The Fucking weird Cornish way is about eating the scone as a whole (Closed sandwich) - This is not possible if you have a decent sized scone and have understood the point is to balance as much cream and jam as is humanly possible.
The Queen apparently eats them as a closed sandwich with jam first, dainty it may be but hardly indulgent - Therefor missing the entire point.
P.S The first cream tea was served in Tavistock Abbey - DEVON 997AD.
The Devon method of Cream first supersedes her Maj as a stamp of approval in my book because.
Also a gentleman cannot align with this sort of nincompoop.
