2 2/3 cups FLOUR (un-sifted)
1 teaspoon BAKING SODA
1 teaspoon BAKING POWDER
1/2 teaspoon SALT
2 tablespoons SUGAR
1/2 cup BUTTER
1 tablespoon ORANGE RIND (grated)
1/2 cup CURRANTS
3 tablespoons VINEGAR
1 EGG (beaten)

Mix flour with baking soda, baking powder, salt and sugar. Cut in butter with two knives or pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse corn meal. Stir in orange rind and currants. Combine vinegar and orange juice. Make a well in center of flour mixture. Add liquid and egg all at once. Stir in mixture with a fork until all dry ingredients are moistened. Turn onto a floured board. Knead gently 8 to 10 times, adding a little more flour if necessary. Roll into 12x6-inch rectangle. Cut into eight 3-inch squares. Cut each square in half diagonally, to make two triangles. Brush tops with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Place on greased baking sheets. Bake in 425 F oven for about 15 minutes (until golden brown). Serve with hot butter.

(Makes 16 scones)
