Notes:

·  Cooking time will vary depending on the size of the scones.

·  Scones can be baked and frozen.

·  The mixed berry conserve can be substituted with a good quality store bought conserve.

·  The sterilise crockery function can also be used to sterilise preserving jars.

·  Conserve can be made successfully on an Induction cooktop. Place berries, lemon juice, zest and vanilla into a large heavy based saucepan on high heat, Induction setting 9. Once fruit has collapsed, add in sugar and boil rapidly for 10-12 minutes until foam dissipates.

To test if conserve has set correctly, place a tablespoon of jam onto a frozen saucer. It should set within 1-2 minutes.
