The History of Scottish Tablet
Tablet has a long history dating back to the early 18th century where it was first mentioned in The Scots Kitchen by F. Marian McNeill. The traditional recipe uses just sugar and cream but by the mid 19th century recipes used a condensed milk and butter substitute for the cream. which reduced the risk of burnt tablet quite drastically!
Be aware when you see Scottish Tablet being described as "Traditional" that doesn't automatically mean that the recipe is very old. Technically as long as you can prove a recipe has been used for 25 years you can claim it is "Traditional". Proper really old Scottish Tablet recipes never contained ingredients such as Vanilla, Golden Syrup or Glucose Syrup but to extend shelf life many companies now use such ingredients. As we don't supply supermarkets we don't need to alter the a recipe that has been in place for over a hundred years - For real old fashioned Scottish Tablet recipe bars click here
