Crumpets are currently my favorite thing about life in England! Have you ever eaten one? They toast beautifully! They are chewy in the middle, even a little spongy, which is a perfect texture! Also, thanks to their extremely pourous surface, butter spreads evenly on them, and is absorbed in a way that is just wonderful. It's as if the crumpet were a very fair-minded butter vacuum. Also, they have this slightly salty/slightly yeasty flavor that just takes everything (i.e., the Apricot preserves) to the next level! Yesterday, I ate 7 of them...(don't make me stop!).
