Fun with flour

My Granny Tess loved to bake. My childhood and teenage years are filled with memories of the whole family in her house every Sunday for her prized Apple tarts, and a jam tart made with the remaining dough leftover.

One of my favourite memories of time spent with my granny Tess in her later years was when I surprised her with all the ingredients we needed to bake scones. We had a lovely day making a mess in the kitchen and having a laugh while doing so. It was an hour spent bringing back tactile memories for gran and learning new ones of myself. I will forever associate Odlums flour with my granny Tess, as it was her flour of choice for decades.

Needless to say, we enjoyed the scones with a giant cup of tea and great conversations.
