Not tablet.

I don't know what it is, but non-Scots seem to have a problem with tablet. Well, with describing it, anyway. As I screeched gently reminded Mr India when he was on the 'phone to his mum, tablet is most definitely NOT fudge.

If I say so myself, I make great tablet - all thanks to my mum, of course. We only ever use butter - non of that margarine nonsense, thank you very much. And grainy, sugary tablet? Not here. We make sure every single grain of sugar has disolved before it is brought to a rolling boil. And do I need a fancy sugar thermometer? Course not - I just boil it until it has reached the the soft ball stage . Neat, huh?

And here it is, ready to be eaten once it has properly cooled. Going to take some into work tomorrow for my colleagues - hope they like it (or rather, hope they don't and then I'll just have to bring it all back...)

I have to admit to never having made tablet, I do love it though and so do all my boys. Hope your work colleagues dont eat it all.
