Another recipe for Tablet !!!!

This came via Email from Bill. Old Angus.

My ISP is not the greatest. Will soon change. I couldn't
get into the CEPB Blog so here's my Info for the lover of sweet

Traditional toffee:
1/2 lbs (225g) Butter or Marg;
1 pint (1/2 Ltr) of water;
4 lbs (1.8 kg) of caster sugar;
1 lb (450g) of sweetened condensed milk
Put the butter or marg and water into a non-stick saucepan and melt on
low heat. When the mixture is melted add the sugar and bring to the boil,
stirring all the time to avoid sugar catching.
When boiling add the condensed milk and simmer for 20min, stirring to
prevent sticking, then take off the heat and beat vigorously for 5 min
adding whatever flavouring you wish.
Pour into a greased tin and when partly cooled, divide into bars 5" X 1/12",(12.5X3.8 cm)
When cold, wrap each bar in waxed paper and store in an airtight tin. Makes
about 4 lbs (1.8 kg) of toffee.

This recipe came from my Aunty Nell (Lic grocer - Lang Stracht, Aberdeen).
