Candied Ginger Scones

Sharing is caring!

Our scone dish at the Butchart Gardens Tea was Candied Ginger Scones. These were a nice start to the tea menu and had a very mild ginger taste. The scones we had at the tea had powdered sugar sprinkled on top.  I chose the raw sugar as we really liked it with the candied ginger. Be sure to chop the ginger up well and get it mixed into the scones and evenly distributed or you might end up with a large piece of ginger in one bite. Serve with Devon style cream and jam.
