Scones and Bannock

As I was making a buttermilk scone recipe with Saskatoonberries from a local chef's dough mix, called WildSernedipity Foods, I discovered a teachable insight. The chef, Michelle Zimmer researched Bannock, thought to be an indigenous food, and discovered it originated in Scotland, in the year1000, and was cut into wedges called scones.

Read her insights here on her blog wildserendipityfoods with her blog entry:
Birthplace of Scones and Bannock

I will have to teach students how things come full circle (and are cut into wedges!) by making bannock and scones in class with them.
