No, not that tablet.
I’m here to sing the praises of Scottish Tablet. Yum.
Tablet, sometimes called Scottish Fudge, is a creamy, yet gritty, sweet confection that melts in your mouth. It’s a total sugar party. One piece is never enough.
This method for making Tablet was taught to me by the Scottish mother of one of my best friends. Unlike many of the versions out there, this one doesn’t require the 5 minutes of beating after the hot mixture is removed from the heat. You just immediately pour it into a pan and let it set up. (I’m not sure why since the ingredients and amounts are the same. I never want to try the beating instruction because how I make it is easier and supremely delicious.)
900g (2 lb) caster sugar
113g (4 oz) butter
150ml (1/4 pt) milk
14 oz sweetened condensed milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1. Melt butter, sugar and milk in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently so that mixture does not burn.
4. Cool for at least 1 hour before cutting into squares.
A Scottish band is a logical choice to accompany some Tablet.
Glasgow-based band Little Waves have a new EP out titled ‘The Sink’. The three tracks are what may been some of the prettiest tunes I have heard in awhile. Take, for instance, “The Kids Are All Heading To Town”…gorgeous.
“I don’t feel my feet on the floor
Maybe I just don’t belong here anymore”
