Scone

Scones are a traditional British baked good, known for their rich, buttery flavor and slightly crumbly texture. They are often enjoyed as part of afternoon tea or breakfast, typically accompanied by clotted cream, jam, and a hot beverage like tea or coffee. Scones come in various shapes, but the most common is a triangular or round form, with plain, fruit-flecked, or other flavored variations available. In terms of ingredients, a basic scone recipe includes flour, butter, sugar, baking powder, and milk or cream. Fruit scones often incorporate dried fruits such as raisins, currants, or candied peel. There are also savory versions, with cheese, herbs or bacon bits mixed into the dough. Scones are best enjoyed fresh from the oven, as they can lose their tenderness and flakiness over time.

Expiration & Storage Tips
When does Scones expire?
Unopened commercially packed scones often have a best before date on the package, usually about 1-2 weeks from the manufacturing date, but should be consumed within 7 days once opened. Freshly baked homemade scones are at their best on the day of baking, but can last for up to 2 days at room temperature, or up to a week in the refrigerator. If frozen, scones can extend their life up to 2-3 months.
How do you tell if Scones is bad?
Stale scones may become hard and lose their freshness. More worryingly, when scones go bad, they may develop mould – watch out for any spots of blue, green, or white fuzz. Moreover, if the scones have an off smell, it's better to err on the side of caution and throw them away.
Tips for storing Scones to extend shelf life
• Store scones in a cool, dry place in an airtight container to keep them fresh for longer. • To extend their shelf life, consider freezing scones. Wrap individual scones in plastic wrap and put them in a zip-top freezer bag. Remember to squeeze out as much air as possible to prevent freezer burn. • When you are ready to eat your frozen scones, thaw them slowly in the fridge to keep them as tender as possible. For a just-baked experience, reheat thawed scones in an oven preheated to 325F (165C) for 10 minutes or so.
