Janet, you are most welcome to include the tablet recipe in your section of Scottish Foodstuffs.
Sorry! but don't know the history of tablet, however I always remember it (as a child ;-)) of being a special treat from grannies and mum, and I would doubt if ever there was a garden fete, bring and buy sale, or any other charity fundraising where Tablet was not for sale. S.W.R.I.s (Scottish Womans Rural Institutes) and other (women's) organisations, could always be counted on for having the best made Tablet competition at some time throughout their yearly calendar (I know this from having given talks to various organisations, where lucky I have "judged" the tablet).
Trust this is of assistance, and all best wishes to your www site, not
forgetting the Clans.
