Best of Boston
1997 Best Crumpets
Sharrock’s English Bakery
Forget “English muffins” and get a hold of the original article. These crumpets are filling enough for a decent breakfast (and, if you have the power to skip butter, they’re fat- and cholesterol-free), yet light enough to leave plenty of room for lunch. Ex-pat Brits swear they’re the only “real” crumpets this side of the Atlantic. If mail order’s not your bag, the bakers also market their goods under the Trader Joe’s label (at all Trader Joe’s stores in the area).
