Yesterday I had my first Cornish cream tea of the season - it felt like being on holiday! The iconic Cornish clotted cream, in the traditional way with home-made scones and jam, and plenty of it. Plain scones, fruit scones... cooks love to add their own twist to a recipe and everyone's jam seems to turn out slightly different (mine certainly does!) so at every seaside cafe or farmhouse tea-room you get a unique and delicious taste of Cornwall. The debate over whether you put the jam or the cream on first will run and run - I'd say do whichever you like.
