In my last post I mentioned that my husband was home for the weekend a day early, and also that he brought butteries with him.
My non-Scottish readers probably have no idea what a buttery is, so I thought I'd do a quick post explaining them. Only I wasn't too sure how to describe them!
I asked my hubby how he would describe them. I suggested that I would say they were 'kind of like a round, flat croissant but saltier.' He agreed but said that the texture isn't as light as a croissant. I'm afraid that's the best we can come up with! So here are a couple of pictures.
I love mine with the butter all melted in. My hubby and James prefer a bit of jam on top too.
Butteries are a breakfast food, kind of like a croissant, like I said, and you warm them slightly in the toaster before eating. You need a nice strong cup of breakfast tea with them.
They are associated with the North East of Scotland, where my husband is now working, and are quite hard to find in other parts of the country, although some larger supermarkets do have them. You can't beat the locally bought ones though!
And before I go, here is my latest crochet project, (complete with cute little sleeping baby foot):
I like to keep you all guessing as to what I'm making!
