Traditional Scottish Drop Scones
We’ve been doing Homestay Host visits this week - and confirming just how friendly people in Crieff can be.
Yesterday I met with Fiona and Keith - and found Fiona in the process of making traditional Scottish drop scones on her Aga.
If you don’t already know, an Aga is a traditional cooker, often used in the Highland and Islands of Scotland. It slowly burns all day (peat or coal), allowing a constant heat source in the kitchen. You then lift up the metal lids to expose the hot metal plate cooking surfaces.
Drop scones are made by putting the pancake batter directly onto the hot metal ring.
The use of Agas mean that in traditional Scottish homes, the kitchen is often the warmest - and therefore the most used room in the house.
