 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2       c            Flour
      1/4   ts           Salt
    2       ts           Sugar
    1       c            Milk
      1/8   ts           Baking soda
    1 1/2   ts           Baking powder
    1 1/2   tb           Shortening
      1/2   c            Currants
 
   Sift flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Cut in shortening with
   fingers. Add currants and soda to mix and stir into flour mixture with
   a fork. Turn out onto a floured board. Knead slightly and pat or roll
   into 1/2 thickness. Cut into triangles or circles. Bake these on an
   ungreased griddle over medium heat. As one side becomes brown, turn
   and brown the other side, then turn each scone slightly on edge and
   place on side of griddle to the “fire”. Turn until all edges are
   slightly browned. The firing will cook the scones through from all
   sides so there will be no raw dough in the center. Split and serve
   with butter, or fill with such as ham or cream cheese.
