In The Hobbit, Gandalf is described as eating loaves with clotted cream, butter, and honey. I'm familiar with clotted cream, but I always eat it with jam - clotted cream PLUS butter seems excessive. Do people frequently eat these things together?
It's really a matter of preference. Some people like the salty dimension that butter gives along with clotted cream and jam, others think the cream is enough saturated fat to be going on with.
