Did you know that I’m British?
Yeah, I’m just being real with you.
Me and the queen, we’re buds. Kate and I, (Middleton of course) we go way back. Sometimes she comes over for tea and scones and we discuss British things… like scones. and… the queen. And her excess of hats!
Are those the only British things I know? hmmm…
I’m not actually English at all, but I didn’t have a Scottish Flag tea towel on hand. Sooo…
I save my fine china for the Royals, obviously. And I’m also speaking to them about adopting a vegan diet. I think this is what British people do. We bake scones and clean our houses in case the queen comes for tea.
And when she does come, (because she will) we serve her homemade scones, with homemade jam and whipped coconut cream. Totally vegan. and the queen is PUMPED about it.
Pip pip. Cheerio.
You know my scone recipe already. So just sub the cranberries for raspberries! It’s your call!
Jam though… JAM is a new addition.
It’s the Jam Plan!
20 minute JAM PLAN!
(Adapted from OhSheGlows)
3 c. of strawberries and raspberries (I used a combo of fresh and frozen)
1.5 tbsp. chia seeds
2 tbsp. maple syrup
Bring the maple syrup and fruit to a boil in a saucepan. Stir frequently because the fruit will burn/stick to the pan. Allow it to simmer for 5-10 minutes and then add the chia seeds. Allow mixture to simmer and firm up for about 15 minutes. Keep stirring!
Put the jam in your finest china bowls and wait for the queen.
If you make the jam and scones, she will come.
