Innkeeper Colleen welcomed the Taste History tour guests and shared history about the Sabal House Bed & Breakfast.

Scones made from scratch and organic tea were the delicious food tastings at the Sabal Palm House Bed & Breakfast.  The tea was provided by Barbara, The Tea Specialist. The origin of the word Scone dates to year 1513. The word scone may have derived from the Middle Dutch schoonbrood (fine white bread), from schoon (pure, clean) and brood (bread). The word scone may also derive from the Gaelic term "sgonn" meaning a shapeless mass or large mouthful. The Middle Low German term "Schönbrot" meaning fine bread may also have played a role in the origination of this word. Or, according to legend, the word Scone is based on the town of Scone, Scotland.   Historically, the first Scones were baked in cast iron pans in rural England and Wales
