I hope you enjoy the scones, Rick.

The 'secret' with real Scottish scones is to handle the dough as little as possible. Only roll it out lightly......

I'm glad someone knows what treacle is - I didn't want to steer anyone wrong re treacle and molasses being interchangeable - thanks for the information!

Scones sound like what my mother made as biscuits.
Black Strap molasses would probably match the treacle in the recipe. Black Strap Molasses are found in the health food section in American markets

Finding Trecle here is tricky for some reason,,
Lyles I can find at the gourmet shops...
right beside the Mc Cains Irish oats,
that allways makes me giggle...

What I have found, is that I can get just about anything,,
from Harrods !
They have a huge gourmet selection , and will ship anything
that is leagal to ship to the States, I'm not IN LOVE with that idea,
but , when baking, the end product can be dear, and is time consuming..
I want the right stuff , I hate when a recipe fails because of ingredients.
I got Clotted Creame from the Scottish Lion ,mail order also ..

Elspeth , if its Treacle or Golden Syrup you want, I can get it at Whole Foods,
and would gladly mail it to you, your so close smile.gif

This post made me HUNGRY !!!!

Thank goodness I am not the only one reading the measures and ingredients and being totally lost.

I think it is great to hang on to recipes from our ancestors. I love to make things that they would of eaten. It's almost like going back. Sort of.. smile.gif

I have a recipe for short bread that was from my great great gran from scotland. It is the best, but like recipes here, you really need the actual ingredients, it doesn't always taste the same, or give the food justice without the right stuff. On the other hand, it is really hard to find some of those items here in Canada. Although it's worth it when you do. biggrin.gif

I don't know what units of measurement you use in Canada - perhaps it's the same as the UK, ie imperial or metric? Or perhaps it's the same as the US?

Anyway, I have 'pinned' 2 threads at the top of this forum. One is a conversion chart for oven temps, and the other is a conversion chart for UK/US.

Sooooo, if you are unsure, just have a look there!

I thought this might be a cute story for here,,
Just to show that recipes from our past, can be confussing------
even when they are'nt from all that long ago..

I work with a woman from Texas.. and her gram was a great baker....
so I told her, get her to write her recipies down,,while she can !
She did..
This girl is no baker, infact, she just started to cook ...
She asks me if she can bring the papers in for me to see..
I was excited to see her grammys recipes...

There were some odd units of measure ...
my very favoirte was " a right smart amount ! "
Your guess is as good as mine here....
Baking is not as forgiving as cooking...
I was in a bit of a hard place as to tell her what to do ...

BUT, the internet is a marvelous thing, between Cracker Barrel ,
and the John Campbell folk school... we got honest units of measure out
of her grammy recipies... I tried a cake, not all that much money to make..
and if your not right on, cakes sort of let you know wink.gif
Turned out light and lovley...
So there are ways ... and research is allways fun !

I think its wonderful that Cat takes the time to share her recipies with us here !
She poo-pooed me once for saying that, but I have had recipes given to me , when I have asked , that have been wrong.. and so have some of my friends.
Some folks are not as generious with theirs... I don't understand that.. but they are ! So to me.. I think its very nice that she does smile.gif

Paula

Arianrhod- I know what you mean. My great grandpa was a cook out in the bush for the loggers. His recipies are really hard to understand. And seeing as he stopped schooling when he was in the fifth grade, the spelling is off, just a smidge.. cool.gif

But it's not too bad. Spelling is mostly what the sound of the word was. And the measures, they haven't been too bad. Like you said, cooking is easier than the baking if the measures aren't there.


Take care
