You will recall my previous entry about the Clackmannanshire Horticultural Society Show, held on 10th September, and my preparations for it. I have hesitated to log the outcome, but since I have just posted a scone recipe, I feel I must back this up with my credentials!

My scones (Rich Buttermilk Fruit Scones) were first prize winners at the show (Thanks, Delia). The fudge brownie tray bake also took the red ticket (Thanks, Mike, for the recipe) and the strawberry jam took third in its class. On the down side, the blackcurrant and raspberry jams and the chutney were unplaced. I was a bit disappointed with the blackcurrant and not at all surprised about the raspberry. It tastes fine but I over boiled it and it has set almost rock solid. You have to hack it our of the jar.

Holly, my friend's daughter, took third with her blackcurrant jam. She's now making loads of bramble jelly. Well done, Holly, but you have to EAT the jam too.

I'm going for the chutney class next year, so the kitchen will reek of vinegar until I perfect a chutney. This is serious stuff, you know.

Congratulations. And thanks for the recipe and for writing and sharing your experiences. I am going to try to make the scones.
