WHERE DID SCONES ORIGINATE FROM?…

THE VILLAGE KITCHEN

Where did scones originate from? Well, they are traditionally connected to England, Scotland and Ireland, but no-one seems to know who invented it.

According to Webster’s Dictionary, scones originated in Scotland in the early 1500’s.

Some say the word “Skone ” comes from the Dutch word “schoonbrot “, which means beautiful bread. Others however, argue it comes from Stone of Destiny, where the Kings of Scotland were crowned, also The Scots Gaelic term “sgonn” means a shapeless mass or large mouthful.

I don’t know about you but I’m not really bothered where it originated from I’m just please someone invented the recipe.

I am a mum and wife to a lovely caring family. I’ve suffered with chronic back pain for over 30 years and started writing my first blog in 2007 which covered back and chronic pain. Since then I have written many more blogs for myself and customers. I find it takes me away from my pain to another place. I love it so much I think it should be part of a recovery process after illness or surgery. I hope you enjoy reading through my blogs.
