Cornish Pride

One of the guidebooks said that there is a persistent, albeit hopeless, movement for Cornish independence from the UK. They certainly have a lot of regional pride. They have “Cornish ice cream”. We had some, it didn’t seem that different that other premium ice creams. Places advertise “relax it’s Cornish coffee”. How different could it be?

But I just saw a “traditional Cornish cream tea” which REALLY is different, that is, “put the jam on first”, and that is, put the jam on the scone then the clotted cream. Clotted cream is think, like butter so this makes no sense to me. I can’t see how it would work well, but it is Cornish.
