Simmer the berries, sugar and lemon juice over a medium heat for approx. 10 mins, allow to cool.
Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Add the butter and rub together using your hands to form an even, crumbly mixture. Pour in the milk and mix quickly to create a soft dough – do not knead.
Roll out the dough to a thickness of approx. 11/2 cm. Using a cutter (approx. 5 cm diameter), cut out 12 scones, place on an oven tray lined with baking paper, brush with milk.
Bake for approx. 20 mins. in the centre of an oven preheated to 200°C.
Remove the Valentine scones, allow to cool a little on a cooling rack, serve just warm or cold with the jam.
