Potato and thyme griddle scones 

I wanted to make my grandmother my own version of potato cakes / scones. I remember how amazing hers tasted when I was a kid. How they crumbled in the mouth and eased off any hunger pangs. I’d run in the door and the hand would be taken clean off me when I’d go for seconds and thirds! 😂

Here is a recipe I’ve come up with that includes one of my favourite herbs : thyme. They are such a wonderful rustic warm comfort food- I hope you enjoy.

🌿 Thyme is an herb from the mint family. You probably recognize from your spice set. But it’s so much more than an after-thought ingredient.

With about 400 subspecies, its range of uses is impressive. Ancient Egyptians used it in their embalming practices, while ancient Greeks used it as incense.

Thanks to its distinctive taste, it has remained a culinary staple to this day. But thyme is also fast gaining a reputation for its medicinal qualities too, such as its ability to help treat acne and high blood pressure.
