Scottish 'Tablet' - a fudge-like sweet

TABLET

Here is my family recipe for Scottish TABLET. (the closest description I can give is similar to an English fudge)

Use a heavy based saucepan.

2 lb of sugar - granulated and cane sugar, not beet, or it won't set!
2 tablespoons of golden syrup (Lyles)
Tin of sweetened, condensed milk (not evaporated)
2 oz butter
3 oz water
Vanilla essence to taste (about 3-4 drops)

Put the butter, sugar, water and syrup in a pan and melt them together. Add the condensed milk and vanilla. Bring to the boil, stirring constantly. Keep at a slow, rolling boil for about 20- 30 minutes, stirring frequently. Take off the heat and beat vigorously for at least ten minutes. Pour into a well-greased, shallow tray. Allow to cool and then mark into squares. Chill in the fridge (best overnight). ENJOY.

The tablet is a much 'grainier' consistency than English fudge!

I see you've visited your sister, Ishbel!!!

Thank you so much for sharing your version. Tablet is truly a standard here and sure looks good, too, aside the chocolate fudge on a plate! I encourage everyone to try some today!

On that note, I finally have a low-humidity weekend with the time to make candy here.....YIPPEE!!!!!

Cows milk with a little goats milk is a nice alternative to condensed milk, makes it a little lighter
