A Recipe for National Scone Day Celebrations

It’s National Scone Day and to celebrate, All Gold sent us an easy recipe for some delicious scones and jam.

In South Africa, scones have been part of our teatime heritage since we can remember. For over five centuries people have been united over a cuppa and a scone.

Elevating the scone is left to a generous dollop of cream, and your flavoursome, great for entertaining All Gold Connoisseurs Jam. Using real fruit, ripened to perfection and preserved for your pleasure, this jam range will turn you into a scone snob in an instant.

Flavours in the Connoisseurs range of jam include Royal Apricot Extra Fruit, Strawberry Extra Fruit, Seville Orange Marmalade, Melon Preserve, Green Fig Preserve. Additional flavours new to the shelves are Blueberry, Raspberry and Mixed Berries (Raspberry, strawberry and blueberries).
