Which way is up? Ubiquitous but illusive Cafe.
Scones, Jam and Cream, are still, at times, known as a Devonshire Tea.
Butter and cream win the taste test but they are 'bad' fats yet other 'more healthy' spreads are full of additives. Butter, which is cream minus water, pure from the dairy, was the food of my ancestors. McDonalds Cafe even serve scones, jam and cream - now that's a worry.
Whether it is true or not, it has been said that all those oils (in spreads), except for olive oil, may cause Macular degeneration which results in severe partial blindness, rightly or wrongly, no matter what, a high fat diet, high cholesterol and hypertension are associated with that condition as well as all-round degeneration.
Moderation with an occasional treat is a start in the right direction....I suppose....one of these days....
