heat oven to 350 degrees. sift self-rising flour at least once into the mixing bowl. stir soda into buttermilk until it begins to foam. pour into well in center of flour and stir with fork incorporating just enough flour to make a very soft dough. gather into ball and place on lightly floured board. pat or roll into a circle, kneading very lightly. use spatula to cut into 8 or 10 wedges. transfer to greased baking sheet. to give scones a shine, brush with milk; for a golden gleam brush with an egg yolk beaten with a tablespoon of water. bake for 10 to 12 minutes in upper third of oven. wrap in linen napkin, tuck into basket and serve soon. makes 8-10 scones.
