Traditional Scottish Tablet
Oh, Scottish tablet! How do I love thee? Let me count the ways…
I’m waxing poetic about one of my favorite Scottish comfort foods: Scottish tablet.
It’s the grainy cousin of fudge and consists ALMOST ENTIRELY of sugar!
Scots Tablet differs from fudge in that it has a brittle, grainy texture, where fudge is much softer. Well-made tablet is a medium-hard confection, not as soft as fudge, but not as hard as hard candy.
Easy to make and easy to adapt with additions, like whisky, vanilla and/or nuts.
Eat tablet in wee pieces and the food guilt blues won’t hit you quite so hard. 😉
You can buy traditional tablet online or at the local Tesco, but WHY?! It’s simple to whip up a batch in less than an hour, and homemade always tastes better.
